Mad Scientess Jane Expat
Shot on top of Dog Mountain in the Columbia Gorge, Washington. We decided to do this climb on a whim. We'd obtained a sketchy list of hikes from the Discovery Center in The Dalles, Oregon. The bloke had a quick look through it, and nearly all of them were listed as "easy/moderate", except this one, which was labeled "most difficult, dude" (okay, maybe not the dude part). Anyway, it amused us, and we thought that "most difficult" when compared to a bunch of "easy/moderate" hikes wouldn't be that challenging. HA. Try a 3000 foot elevation change over the course of 3.1 miles of trail. Never let it be said that I haven't suffered for my art.
