Gifford Pinchot National Forest, Washington
~5 miles, ~500 feet elevation change
A meandering trail, a stroll, really, high above the banks of the Lewis River, occasionally touching down to greet the river's edge where water plunges over falls. Not a spectacular hike, but rather lovely and calm and oh so good to be outside, exploring an area I haven't visited before. The forty-some-odd elk scattered along the road's edges on the drive home didn't hurt either.
Five days until finals.
