My brother John flew out to visit me in Portland this week and we had a lot of fun. One of the highlights of his visit was a day hike that we took to Dog Mountain. The wildflowers are in bloom right now and I would highly recommend a trip out there to anyone in the Portland area. Dog Mt. is a little over an hour drive from Portland in the Columbia River Gorge and it's about 7 miles round trip. Get out there soon while the flowers are in bloom. Here are some of my favorite pics from the hike. Enjoy!
