The hotel shuttle driver dropped us of at NW 28th and Upshur and we found the Lower Macleay Park Trailhead. There's an interesting red sculpture marking the trailhead but to be honest I didn't take much time to study it.
We followed this trail for .85 miles to a stone house. Nature's sounds completely drowned out the city sounds during this part. I also noticed that though we kept meeting people, no one ever came up behind us and no one was in front of us...
|Yes she is skipping!|
|You know I'll find water any and everywhere.|
At the Stone House we turned onto the Wildwood Trail, but first we did a little exploring.
|The Stone House was built as a rest station in the 1930s. It was a great rest for me since it was the last flat part until the top.|
|This is just the beginning of sticking flowers in our hair...|
|Nice house but I do wonder who toted all that stone up there in 1909.|
|That's Mt. Hood in the background!|
|The view from laying on the grass behind the mansion...happy.|
