snowshoe: Old Salmon River Trail
We were headed to Mount Hood for snowshoeing, but when the traffic was at a standstill in Welches and the line of cars went as far as I could see, we headed to the Old Salmon River Trail instead. This is a hike that I’ve done several times but only when there’s no snow, so it was a treat to see this rainforest in the winter with snow covering everything. Even the boulders in the river has mounds of snow on them.
Distance: 5 miles roundtrip with 200 ft gain
