Tanner Creek

We set out on Sunday to check out a new trail. I have taken my son on many short hikes in our area, and according to two of the websites I find new trails on, this one was "family friendly". Not enough for us though. You see, he has outgrown his front carrier and I do not have a backpack carrier yet. So we tackle our short "hikes" pushing his stroller. Now, his stroller is like a tank. It has made it through some pretty intense rides. Rocky inclines, mud puddles, sand, autumn leaves... the list goes on. But the trail we chose this time was no go. It had fallen trees and stairs, which is not stroller friendly in the least. So we will be back to finish it later.

I was able to capture a few of the sights on the way back from where we gave up and turned around. The creek that our trail followed was flowing rapidly, but the water was still so clear you could easily see the bottom.

  1. The water does look beautiful but cold. Did you manage to find another walk a little more suitable?

  2. I remember those days!! It is a challenge to be carrying a child and a camera...
    The image is beautiful!! I love the rushing water and the moss all over the trees!

  3. There's not many trails in the Gorge that are stroller friendly. You'll have to check out the old scenic highway. It's paved and quite nice. I like the section by the Mosier Twin Tunnels. Here's a link to a hike I did there last year: http://photomomlinda.blogspot.com/2011/11/historic-highway.html.

  4. What a beautiful place! You'll have to try again when the little guy is walking. :)

  5. Wow that is beautiful!

  6. Time for that pack. I do remember those days, I don't think my back would be up to it today. When my kids were little the carriers were very simple, did not even have a hip belt but hung on the shoulders. Hubby added a hip belt so that it did rest on the hips.


I appreciate everyone that stops by to check out the Mt Hood to Portland, Oregon area through my photos ... Have a wonderful day!
