Frenchmen’s Bar Hike

Hike Distance: 3.3 miles      Yearly Hike Distance: 236 miles

Elevation Gain: 307 feet      Yearly Elevation Gain: 34888 feet

A last minute decision to hike local.  It was a bit cooler than expected and the wind didn’t help.  It was a surprise that their weren’t any ships anchored in the Columbia, but this made for nicer pictures.

I met up with an older couple that was out for a walk, toward the end of the hike, and we had a very nice conversation.  They were in their mid-80’s and just enjoyed getting out in the fresh air!

This hike worked out nicely as I wasn’t in the mood for a long hike with elevation.  Sometimes it’s just nice to get out and not think about moving all the time.  I took a couple breaks and just sat on logs, gazing out at the beautiful Columbia River. 🙂  A very relaxing day.
