Wild Weather Hike on the Ridgeline Trail

Last weekend even though the weather couldn’t make up its mind, my roommate Sarah and I headed out to the Ridgeline Trail System just 10 minutes south of downtown for a quick urban hike. Taking the trail for a 4-mile out & back, we started at the Spring Blvd Trail head and hiked to the Fox Hollow Trail head and back. Along the way we encountered snow, hail, rain and even a little sunshine. Here are some of my best iPhone photos from the afternoon excursion.

  1. Oh, I love some good Oregon pictures! I went to the U of O! So fun to see that you stopped by my blog today – a fellow Eugenian!!! (Well, I’m not there now, but I’m planning on visiting in May!) I look forward to perusing more of your posts. I’ve got to feed my need for Oregon photos…moss…and rain…love it!

  2. Gosh I haven’t been on Ridgeline in so long! I used to run that thing all the time.
    Your photos are a really good representation of Oregon’s sporadic weather. Intense and beautiful
