A Saturday Hike to Zig Zag Canyon

On Saturday I had the day off so Raf and I decided to go on a hike. It’s a favorite: The Timberline/Pacific Crest Trail from Timberline Lodge to Zig Zag Canyon. It always feels like Summer is complete when I can go on a good hike up on Mt Hood.

This is a short hike, a little over 5 miles round trip. I always seem to forget that it is all uphill on the way back to the lodge – The hike to the canyon always feels great! Then I inevitably run out of water halfway through and I have to hike back, uphill, with little to no water. And Saturday it was in 85 degrees, or thereabouts. I was a bit dehydrated when we were finished!

It was fun though. I need more hiking in my life!
