Create Summer Memories with Walking and Hiking


I


s it August already? Where did the summer go? If the first day of school was this week, what would the answer be to that age-old question, “What did you do this summer?”


Hikers and walkers who have taken to the trails in past months have many stories to tell. There was the Rogue River trail, where weather and wildflowers were wondrous. This annual trek is a classic, and it is not too soon to get on the list for 2011. Then there were the wildflower and vista hikes of Dalles Mountain Ranch, Catherine Creek, Mount Adams, Silver Star and Iron Mountain, to name a few. Stories from city walks included works of art, both natural and artist-created; foun- tains, stairs, trees, history, architecture and, of course, food. Fortunately, summer is not yet over, and hikers need not despair that all the good stuff has passed. Great outings are scheduled through summer and well into autumn to take advantage of great weather yet to come.


August starts out with the Brew Pub


Walk, offering a great reason to stroll the city on a summer evening. Later in the month, head to Opal Creek Ancient Forest Center to explore the old growth forest


It’s not too late to join fellow walkers and hikers on summer adventures.


there. Take a hike at the coast. Head to the east side of Mount Hood for a hike to the highest point on the Timberline trail. Explore trails at Mount St. Helens and many favorite peaks in the Central Oregon Cascades. Discover the MAC Trail in Washington Park with treats under the trees. Enjoy a leaf shuffle in the Arboretum when autumn colors appear and leaves drop onto the trail.


There are at least two outings every week. The Walking & Hiking Committee


works hard to offer something for everyone. Check out The Journey, the newsletter and schedule for events and outings, on the Walking & Hiking home page at theMAC.com. The Journey is published monthly and mailed to those who request this service.


There is a lot of summer left in 2010 to ensure there are stories to share with those who ask, “What did you do this summer?” WM
