The Larch

Tiny cones on snow

Not having read in the paper (as everyone else seems to have) that it was still not fully open, Barbara and I decided to take a little drive up to Larch Mountain, with its “incredible 5 mountain view” (according to the map from the Friends of Multnomah Falls).

So we turned off of the mother lode of cars travelling the Historic Columbia River Highway just past Corbett and followed a Porche most of the way up to the 8-mile post where — instead of the 100° temperatures we were stewing in at home — there was so much snow that the road was several feet deep, all sorts of trees had been knocked down, and we were forced to turn around and go back to the heat below 2000′.
