Is this a fantastic view of the Columbia River, or what? And this is only halfway up! Trains that look as small as toys run right past the Rock. It's a glorious place to hike!
Except for the climbing. It's 480 feet high with a mile of switchbacks to get to the top. Fifty two switchbacks to be exact. Bring water.
Cheerful pose at the top. But guys, it's all downhill from here. You made it! Hurray! Guys? Hello? I don't think they are listening.
