High Desert Hike

Date: March 9 Location: Templeton Campus Center

Templeton Campus Center


Come explore the dry side of the Columbia River Gorge east of the town of Hood River. This dramatic landscape, sculpted by the largest floods in earth’s geologic history, has spectacular hiking trails, a lot less rain, and usually a good supply of sunshine.  Join us to get some exercise, fresh air, and to see spring come to the east side of the Cascade mountains while hiking up to some stunning viewpoints above the Columbia River.


Cost: $30*
*Thanks to ASLC, the fee is just $15 if you are a Davis Scholar or have federal financial aid.
