On Friday Aug. 19th Bob and I hiked the short section of the PCT from the Bridge of the gods trail sign to the bridge that is off of Dry Creek Rd. Our goal was Dry Creek Falls and then back to Cascade Locks to check out the PCT Days event in Cascade Locks later that day.
My last time on this trail was before the Eagle Creek Fire in 2017. This is what it looks like now.
This was our goal. To walk to Dry Creek Falls.
This is what is left of the famous 'shoe tree' near Dry Creek Falls. It used to have more larger branches with many more trail shoes hanging from the branches. I only saw one pair of shoes this time.
Below is a photo of Dry Creek.
I took some photos of the berries that I found as we headed back to Cascade Locks. We hiked back along Dry Creek Road. It does get dry and grassy on the way back to town!
Fairy Bells (Prosartes hookeri)
Snowberry also known as Waxberry.
I am an avid walker and hiker. My favorite is a long hike. I also enjoy taking off and going on a meandering walk for a few hours. I've hiked rim to rim in the Grand Canyon and I did 3 Burning Boot Walks on Vancouver Island.
