Visit the dry, eastern part of the Columbia Gorge at Catherine Creek. If you are up for a somewhat strenuous climb uphill, you will be rewarded with wildflowers, views of the Columbia river gorge and Mt. Hood, and a secluded campsite. Poison oak, ticks, and rattle snakes can be common in April, but well worth the risk to explore this beautiful area! You will leave early Saturday morning and return Sunday in time for dinner.
