  1. Reblogged this on Phase Three and commented:
    My husband has mentioned his experience with Beacon Rock in Columbia Gorge. I had thought he literally climbed it, handhold by handhold. He had said he hiked it and I envisioned primitive growth requiring him to beat out a hiking path. I didn’t realize there is already a path there to be taken. Not something I could do now, might have been able to to it back then when he was telling me about Beacon Rock.

    • You can climb straight up the cliff if you’re into that. I saw evidences that rock climbers use parts of Beacon Rock. I just wanted good photos, and switchbacks up 840-some vertical feet was enough of a challenge, after two other hikes earlier in the day.
