Mr. N as usual is staring intently at the camera and Sage is like oh but there’s water over there! I want to dive in!
At the summit, there’s an off leash dog park. Sage ran around looking for squirrels and Mr. N performed his war dance.
We were on a bit of a tight schedule so after letting the dogs play for a few minutes, we headed over to the central part of the park.
Council Crest supposedly is the highest point in Portland at 1,073 feet above sea level. There used to be an amusement park up here but now it’s a park.
On what the boyfriend calls a “five mountain day,” you can see Mt Hood, Mt St. Helens, Mt Adams, Mt Jefferson and Mt. Rainier as well as an excellent view of the Portland skyline from up here.
The dogs with the mother and child statue and water fountain by Frederick Littman. It was stolen once then found during a narcotics raid ten years later and returned to the park.
On the way back, Mr. N tried to climb this tree. Thwarted by a squirrel once again!
Sage’s human hurt her knee (not on the hike) so our hiking activities may be curtailed for a bit. Hop over to her blog and send her healing thoughts!
