This was a special hike for Jeanette and I as it was our 10th year wedding anniversary. It so happens that we spent our honeymoon in the Columbia River Gorge, so it is always special for us to go back. Friends Dan and Charlene Lowry joined us at the Inn of the White Salmon as we took in two days of hiking. Dan took the following two photos of Jeanette and I on our Friday hike.

We enjoyed stopping to look at lots of interesting things along the trail, including butterflies, lizards and wildflowers, and I was able to get photos of Arrowleaf Buckwheat, Douglas' Buckwheat, and Barrett's Penstemon for our Wildflowers.
