Salvation Springs (2127.7) to Cascade Locks (2155.1)
I was excited about the day. I would hike the alternative route called the Eagle Creek Trail. I would end in my day in Cascade Locks, the end of Oregon and start of Washington.
To get to the Eagle Creek trail I had to take a rough goat track for about 1.5 miles. And it was rough, slow and steep. The reward was a stunning trail for several miles past stunning gorges, waterfalls and tempting swimming holes. At one of the swimming holes I ran into my two favourite Hawaiians, Seth and Malia. Know known as Stitch and Otter. Great to catch up with them again, I thought they were many miles ahead. They introduced me to a simple, easy to make and tasty dessert. They had picked a batch of Huckleberries then made up an instant cheesecake. Cheesecake and Huckleberries! Talk about intense flavours. That instant cheesecake meal will be in my backpack from now on! It really hit the spot.
Together we walked the rest of the way to Cascade Locks. What a day, what a week or two, so ends my hike in Oregon. Wow, that went by quick!
