A note to our readers: We are both physically active and in good health. We encourage our readers to consult with their doctors before taking up any new activities.
Please be aware that all outdoor activities involve some level of risk. Our posts are based on our personal experiences, but they are informational only. Before heading out, we check the latest information for our destination. We take along maps and appropriate survival gear. Things can change quickly out there; it's Oregon, after all! Be prepared. Part of the fun of getting outdoors is coming back and sharing your stories.
