2106 – 2118
Ramona Falls in the morning: just spectacular. The forest is getting that deep mossy feel. On the advice of one single Guthooks comment, I took the long-ish detour on the Timberline Trail. It was like a magical rain forest. I was a little worried that I might be heading for a long in-and-back hike. But it turned out to be a fantastic morning full of mushrooms and moss and waterfalls and streams. A Dr. Seuss world of funny cute mushrooms.
I camped on the Bull Run side of the trail, in Portland’s watershed. My apologies to the other hiker at that space. It was a little steep to find another flat spot that late. I’m just as uncomfortable hearing the squinch of your inflatable mat, knowing you can hear mine. So personal.
