Move the feet

I wanted to write up the rambling, curse filled guide to hiking Mt. Pisgah in Eugene (gods, even the name is awesome!) but now I’m home with the kiddo in the bath, the boyfriend packing for his Las Vegas trip, work tomorrow & a brain that is equally parts sugar happy (iHop is a delicious evil place) & hike tired (4.5 mile hike straight up & straight down). To sum up, Pisgah is one of the most rewarding hikes in the Willamette Valley: close, cheap parking, both ‘easy’ footing & technical trails, relatively quiet on an intermittently rainy winter’s day, with hands down some of the best views of the southern Valley from the summit that are worth cursing your entire way up (if you’re out of shape like I am!) Enjoy some pretty pictures & head out that way if you’re ever in the neighborhood!

Halfway up crazy stupid I wore the rain jacket for 20 feet before I overheated & yanked it off selfie!

Summit selfie, cause damn, it’s awesome up there & my own two feet hauled me up!

Obelisk on the summit, doesn’t count if you didn’t touch it!

This tree was convinced it’s already spring, quite nice to stumble upon 🙂
