It was an awesome hike! Great vistas of the Gorge, incredible wild flowers, and -you get up-close and personal with Hell Roaring Canyon and the headwaters of the Klickitat River.
Next time you're looking to stretch the legs and go on a killer day excursion, check out Bird Creek Meadows. Pack a #4 weight and make a few casts in Mirror Lake on your way. Although I didn't fish it, a few of the large trout I saw rising made me wish I had packed a rod.
