Salmon River hike (8 miles)

The last hike was awesome so let's do another one! Salmon River is another of my favorites out near Welches, OR (southwest of Mt Hood). It's an out-and-back hike, 8 miles round trip with ~1000 ft of elevation gain (compared with 850 on our last one). Note that most of the elevation gain is in the last mile or two. The first two-thirds of the trail travel through some old growth forest along the river (tons of moss-covered trees), and in the last third we'll ascend to a magnificent viewpoint which makes a great spot for lunch.

Let's meet at the same place as last time--NE corner of the Lloyd Center parking lot, across the street from Applebee's. The meeting time is a bit earlier than last time since the drive is a tad longer (1 hour) and so is the hike. This time I'll make sure I know how to find the freeway. :)

    Sorry for the late cancellation. I hurt my back last week and it's still not 100 percent this morning. :(

    Need to carpool, no car... Can chip in gas$$$. Do we have a set amount, or playing it by ear? Guess # of ppl per car would cause that to vary...

      No set amount for driver contribution. It's between you and whomever drives you! :)

    I was really looking forward to this, but hurt my hip recently. I need to stay off of it as much as possible. :( Hopefully we can do another one soon!
