The Gap again

After a illness i am going to have to start again. The Gap is one of my favorite short hikes. It fits one of my criteria for a hike. Its steep at 2000 feet up. Also steep goiung down with a creek crossing at the bottom before we get back on the trail.
Difficult yes
2000 feet gain
Steep dirt banks
Steep loose boulder fields
Its a pretty hike but some have had trouble with the hike.
4.5 miles but tough ones.

    Ok guys not a great day with marianne taking a 100 feet fall into a tree. Lucky the tree was there to keep her from falling off another cliff. Dr mark was with us so he gave her immediate attention. Awesome guy. She has a food concussion and maybe broken ribs. Helicopter came but i dont know if it took her off the ridge. Lots of help from Multnomah search and rescue. Glad they came cuss normally tge falls is their boundary.

      Accidents happen on the trail, the best we can do is be prepared and do our best to stay safe.

      Wow, how scary, I saw on news but never suspected it was NW Wilderness group. Sounds like she was in great hands through her horrible ordeal.

    Hey, I'd be coming from Hood River and need to know where to meet and when. Where is this Gap hike? Unfortunately, I just don't have time to dig around and find it. If you know where it is, could you please just send the group a link? Thanks.

      Thanks. I seem to remember that roman mythology has jupiter and zuess as the big god. I was more into greek. Thought that the romans ripped off the greeks by using same gods but changed the names.

      Guys if you have done any scrambling you will do fine. If not we can show you how to place your feet. Problem is when you are slipping all the time. It wears you out fast.
