In April 2013, Sarah and I set out on a windy gorge hike at Coyote Wall. Since Amy is so dedicated and refuses to miss church we enjoyed a more exposed, steeper climb. Analise was 7 months old
Analise didn't mind the wind so much and seemed pretty cozy on this hike.
There were a few late Trillium to enjoy.
We meandered up the road and then hit the trail to enjoy the wildflowers.
The day was windy but a great day for hiking.
The flowers made me smile.
We gave Analise a chance to explore them but she was distracted by the wind and all the sights.
We enjoyed having her with us, especially since she was content.
Though I enjoy so much having my six year old wonder, the adult conversation was nice as well.
This was a pretty exposed hike with the old orchards and great views back down to the river.
There were a few wildflowers still clinging to the side of the hill but they take quite a beating.
The Washington side of the gorge still feels wild to me and is a great place to explore, especially in the spring!
What a refreshing day.
On this windy winter night, it helps to remember the soft breeze of spring.
