It will be my first time to the PNW and am interested in checking out all that I can...it seems like a great place
Take a hike up Eagle Creek, and if you are a class five boater, bring your boat. It is one of the most amazing canyons anywhere, beyond words, you can actually make a few day backpacking trip out of it, bring Gore-Tex. The West fork of the Hood River is actually a pretty fun run, The Green Truss of course, overnighters on the Deschutes, The Little White Salmon, Canyon Creek, Hike to the top of Beacon Rock and Dog Mountain. Go buy some beads from my mom at Ikote.
