Burnt Bridge Creek Trail Hike from Bernie Drive

Hike Distance:  3.3 miles      Yearly Hike Distance:  290.7 miles

Elevation Gain: 474 feet      Yearly Elevation Gain: 41978 feet

The past couple have weeks I’ve slowed down quite a bit due to many factors.  The Portland/Vancouver area has been seeing plenty of snow and we’ve spent quite a bit of time held up in our house.  I’ve also had a couple of procedures that required days of preparation and took my energy level down.  All these activities have taken away my short term motivation, and I hope to get back in the swing of things soon.

I almost stayed home and vegged out but was able to pick my lazy butt up and get out for some fresh air.  I’m so glad I did as the fresh cold air, and snow flurried, put me in a more energetic mood. 🙂   I was so slow to get out that I forgot my hiking poles, which hasn’t happened before.  I also found my satellite beacon had no battery power, and tethered it to my lithium-ion battery pack for the entire hike.

A bit of snow is still hanging around and the mood was fantastic.  There was about a half dozen people seen during the hike.  Not a long hike but certainly high quality.
