Becky was in for a week-long visit from back east. She was one of the “Beer and Whiners” hiking group we had last years. So we invited past members to a hike of Tom McCall Preserve as a get together. After killing some time in the Columbia Gorge Museum to allow a very wet front to pass we did our hike up to Tom McCall Point. No rain but lots of wind. And the first blooms of Spring wild flower season. It was nice to see the Gorge so green.
