If you have no plans for the holiday, let's see if enough of us are interested to go to the preserve and see all the spring wildflowers. It's an easy mile each way.
We'll meet at the Gateway Transit Center to arrange carpooling, drive about an hour east of Portland to Mosier. After the hike, those who want to can stop in Hood River for lunch and exploration.
In keeping with the holiday, come prepared with a story to share of someone who has passed on, but rests sweetly in your memory.
