angel's rest hike

A few weeks ago when we all had that Monday off (I don't even remember which holiday it was... Memorial Day maybe?) some friends and I all went hiking up in the Columbia River Gorge. We decided to hike Angel's Rest and let's just say there isn't all that much resting involved. The hike is just shy of 5 miles round trip and has an elevation gain of  1,450 ft.  The views though - the views make the elevation gain all worth it.... so pretty.


















If you come visit me, I will take you on this hike. 

Cheers!

The pics of each person from the back thoughtfully gazing into the scenery are so frame able! The hike looks gorgeous, the 5 miles sounds doable but I assume with that elevation game pretty strenuous and intimidating! How long did it take, including the fancy photos hoot?

Angel's Rest is a great hike! We did it earlier in the spring, but it was rainy and overcast (shocking haha) and so we didn't have the best views...but the Gorge is so stunning no matter what the weather! You got some beautiful photos! :)

And also, I loveeee your leggings, super cute!
