Angel's Rest (12/26/15)

With just a few days in Oregon/Washington, Maroof had to squeeze in some Northwest adventure.

Last year, we took the New Yorker to Cannon Beach for a post-Christmas visit. This year, it was a Dec. 26 hike in the Gorge.

Jill and Maroof had just a few hours before they were pulled to another activity (when you only come once a year, everyone wants a piece of you!), so we chose Angel's Rest - short, close and easy with a great payout.

It was crazy-windy at the top, but we found a semi-sheltered spot on the west side of the summit for a snack and some pictures: 
The newlyweds:
Not us... we're oldly weds :)
Headed back down:
We survived!
We really loved taking Jill and Maroof on an outdoor adventure and showing them what we do for fun around here. Hopefully there will be time for more adventure next Christmas :)
