Training Hikes in the Gorge

Subject: Training hikes


Saturday, June 22, 2019
This is just an unsolicited post with a couple of photos from our training hikes.
A big thank you to so many people who have asked whether Bongo will be joining us on this CDT hike. Alas, she will not due to the many logistical issues of airplane flight and small town motels/restaurants with dogs. As many of you know, Bongo did happily hike about 900 miles of the Appalachian Trail with us in 2015. Here is a photo of her this past March hiking in the Gorge (with her usual backpack). It looks huge but mostly empty.

Another photo is of the interesting recovery of the Gorge after the heartbreaking Eagle Creek fire several years ago. The fire left a mosaic pattern, some places scorched but many areas mixed with burned and not. One can see nature returning in the black char. I am amazed to see how scorched some big old trees got but now are green and thriving up top.
