High & Dry, Low & Wet

The question was how to enjoy a day around Mt. Adams. A ridgeline hike, with grand views that includes Mt. Adams, Mt. Hood, Mt. Baker, and even a peak at Mt. St. Helens might be good. White water rafting down the White Salmon River is fun.

Well, if the goal is Maximum Adventure, then the answer is both: 8.2 miles in the hills and 7.5 miles down the river.

That rafting is awfully fun. That river packs a lot of thrills and beauty in a couple of hours, or so.

Great to have an excuse (nephew) to vacation nearby.
