Very lucky to have trails like this practically in my backyard. The weather was crazy today; storm clouds were off in the distance and I couldn’t see the mountains. Decided to stay local and hike a part of the Deschutes trail. It was incredibly windy, making it even hard to walk a couple times. Once we made it to the treeline, trees were swaying almost violently. Off in the distance, we heard a loud crack and a tree came crashing down across the river from us. Again, crazy weather, but still grateful to be able to decide on a whim to hike such a beautiful trail.
