Columbia River Gorge loop

A nice 50k+ outing with Paul Turner off of the gorge in northern Oregon. Cool drizzle to start the day, some wind and mixed rain and snow up on top of Chinidere Mountain above Wahtum Lake and then a moderate afternoon cruising back down the Pacific Crest Trail and over the Gorge Connector trail.
Starting up Eagle Creek.
Running behind Tunnel Falls.
Upper Eagle Creek trail near Wahtum Lake.
In the rain/snow on top of Chinidere Mountain, 4,700'.
PCT heading north from Wahtum Lake/Chinidere Mtn. toward Cascade Locks.
My GPS cut out a lot coming up through the canyon; trail maps and guides have the loop at ~32.5 miles.

Thanks Paul!
