From the right; Yeon Mountain, Saint Peter’s Dome, and Rock of Ages. There have been a lot of renaming efforts all over, and the Gorge is no different. Saint Peters Dome has been unofficially renamed Witch’s Pestle. We also seek to honor the people that were originally here in the gorge and their stories; so we rename the Rock of Ages to Coyote’s Pride, in honor of the spirit world of the native tribes and their great chief of all the gods, Tyee Sahale, the Great Coyote. Yeon Mountain was named after the Yeon family. The father, John Baptist Yeon, oversaw the building of the historic Columbia River Highway. His son, also named John, was a preservationist and modern architect who played an important role in preserving the gorge; his “shire” directly across the Columbia River is a beautiful homage to Asian principles of “borrowing” scenery; in our opinion the name stands at this time.

Saying goodbye to our first traveler if the year, number two comes on Friday and then I do it myself on Saturday. Happy Tuesday peeps :) #capehornviewpoint #columbiagorgeous
Is it unreasonable that this is how I want to spend all of my time??
Cape Horn viewpoint in the winter snow. This was our last stop on the Sunday Gorge drive. We also hit Al-Amir for dinner and caught up with some friends that also went on our Peru trip in 2017 - that was fun - but back to work for me. Texas this weekend #columbiagorgeous #capehornviewpoint #capehornwashington

Multnomah Falls photo just sent to me by our Waterfalls of the Columbia Gorge tour guide today, @steelhorserider. The snows have mostly melted. The stunning redcedar and big leaf maple trees are showing their ferns and lichens and mosses once again.

Also this photo is insane, yo. See the full version in stories.

Earned the mud on my hiking boots today in Forest Park! Great group from @womenwhoexplore_oregon.

Just playing around with my Helios 44-2. I love the swirl effect it gives to the background. 📷🤓
More chasing waterfalls... Less bullshit 💦💦
I'm pretty sure that this is what my Subaru dreams of when it's sleeping... 🤓
We’re crazy about these photos of the Multnomah Falls pool yesterday. (1&2 @steelhorserider; 3 @cafemama). We’re making one into a postcard (because we love you). ALSO! Check our website for our sweet Lover’s Tour — Thursday and Friday, only $55. Meant to support and open the heart to intimacy and beauty.

First day of Snowmageddon 2019 and I think Ty approves. We’re almost to a foot of snow here in Hood River! #columbiagorgeous #gorgedogs #dogsofinstagram #snowmageddon
The beautiful PNW...about to be hit by a butt load of snow?? We’re not used to this winter weather!!

So much magic today in the gorge! I love when it’s icy. I can drive extra slow and just enjoy! #columbiagorgeous #oregonisawesome #tourguidelife #chasingwaterfalls #waterfallicicles #theoffbeatadventurer
The places you visit are like people, they grow and change, go through cycles in life; now full and lush with warmth, now frosted and slicked with ice as if bejeweled for a ball. We tried to climb up beyond the waterfall today and were turned back 3/4 mile up by ice. It felt so full of celebration, shining and glowing, dazzling and sparkling. We couldn’t help but celebrate the beauty with our own joy and smiles.

Happy waterfall.... Dammit! Thursday!?! I missed it again 🙄

One of the reasons we love going out on tours so much, even when we only have a few people along, is that sometimes (often?) we just happen upon the people that are the next collaborator, next inspiration, the next connection for us to move into the space we want to be. We believe strongly in setting our intentions every day and letting the world unfold in the way it was meant to. We are lousy with ideas and many of them are waiting for the right person to slip into the spot we (and they) have independently envisioned. There is a magic and a strong sense of serendipity in our work. We work hard but we keep ourselves wide open to let the pieces click into place, personally and professionally.

And honestly sometimes it’s just about absorbing this crazy sweet beauty. How can we not be better guides, business owners, and humans after getting to see this sight and breathe this incredible air?

Today we drove up to Chanticleer Point to see a photographer and his friend shooting this amazing scene. Of course we struck up a conversation. It turned out he had recently published a book on the Pacific Northwest ... with the press of a great friend, family cyclist and foodie (@patrickbarber) ... and he’s been thinking about running tours!
We’re picking up Bob’s book ASAP, and seeing what else will come of it. We love learning from other longtime denizens of the places we call home, workplace, first love, latest passion.

Thanks for the photo Bob! And thanks for connecting us sweet Lady Gorge.

Who else likes road trips? I like spontaneous ones, well-planned ones and everything in between. Long trips, weekend trips, day trips. On this one I got to drive stick shift and I love it! 🚗 🚙 🚘

This was my favorite photo from this morning. Bre in her element and Emma looking up at her ❤️ glad I got out in nature one last time before I leave! I truly grew up in a beautiful place.

Now, off to pack like mad 🙃
Happy waterfall.... Thursday? 🤷🏻‍♂️
Last night I watched that Fyre Festival documentary on #netflix . The scene, where all the festival attendees show up to the empty campground and realize they got ripped off, is more satisfying than the climax of Inglorious Basterds where they burn down the movie theater with all nazis locked inside.
The Snapchat videos of the kids in the bus saying “I don’t understand, we’re stranded?” is like the scene with Eli Roth unloading the mp40 into Hitler’s face while the dynamite around his ankle goes off.
I feel bad for the Bahamians though.
I’m sure a lot of people feel the same way.
I’m not special.
Here’s a waterfall.
Branching out. Early morning foggy hike. ☺️🌲

Had to escape to the riverfront before the sun sank. Wishing it was warm enough to SUP. #thathoodriverlife #columbiagorgeous #winter
Above Multnomah Falls on the hike to Wahkeena Falls. Where will this week’s restorative hike take us? Happy Friday! Dinner and movie were great last night. #multnomahfalls #columbiagorgeous #wheretohiketomorrow
Every tree is interesting and unique. But some just stand out among the rest...
Todd, the Gorge at the top of Multnomah Falls :) Happy Thursday - dinner, movie and errands tonight :) #multnomahfalls #columbiagorgeous #wherewillwehikethisweekend
Mountains, a River, and selfie sticks as far as the eye can see 👀
Midweek, had a great dinner with our good friend Jordan last night - a spicy chicken curry affair with wine, music, puppy/kitty and catching up. We’ve know each other for about 22 years from SAT. This is the first time since the late 90’s since we’ve lived in the same place! We will get together again really soon. Night at home tonight and pizza/movie tomorrow evening - yup this week is all kinds of okay :) #columbiagorgeous #multnomahfalls #oregonwinterhike
So my hunt for the Super Blood Wolf Moon was a fail... We were going to go to a place in Sandy then we thought because of the forecast it was going to be too cloudy to even see the moon. Then we saw it in a break through the clouds and decided to go up the Columbia River Scenic hwy to the view point across from the Vista House. I got set up on top of the Subie and adjusted my camera's settings. When we got there we were the only ones there but more came by the time we left... We watched the fog pour in over the Columbia River, it was so cool too watch. I caught a few shots of the moon through breaks in the clouds though there was light fog covering almost the whole time. I watched the eclipse and the moon disappear but the clouds just made the moon black. Didn't see any red. That's Oregon... just Oregon weather for ya.... No worries I'm hoping to see the next one that's supposed to happen in 150 years 😄

An elusive Gorge shot from the walk to the top. It looks winter and cold but it wasn’t that bad (almost 50 degrees, perfect for a hike) #multnomahfalls #columbiagorgeous #oregonwinterhike
Taking new perspectives with the fire-scorched trees makes the waterfalls endlessly interesting. (As if they need any help.) Every day is a good day in the Columbia Gorge!

We chased all the waterfalls on Saturday, sorry TLC #multnomahfalls #wahkeenafalls #columbiagorgeous #mondaymorningmood
We saw both the beginning of the eclipse and, later on the way home, the beautifully clear blood moon eclipse. We gave away the stories that no longer serve us. What an amazing night!

It is really nice when you just go with the flow and not worry about plans. It sometimes can turn out better than you expected :) #multnomahfalls #wahkeenafalls #columbiagorgeous #saturdayhikes #sundaysleepypants
Another busy work week, another restorative hike. 7 mile hike to Wahkeena Falls. We attempted to go directly there but we were *forced* to park and hike through Multnomah Falls to get there, oh damn. A lovely lunch at the lodge finished off the weekend hike. Cava and nibbly things for sup ;) #multnomahfalls #wahkeenafalls #columbiagorgeous #saturdayhikes #onawintersday
Happy Thursday, it’s windy.
MY PARENTS GOT MARRIED!! ❄️✨🥰🐶 •

It’s not always about taking photos from the top of a mountain or the base of some hard-to-find waterfall. Sometimes the challenge we seek on one of our Columbia Gorge Day Hiking tours is simpler, less extravagant. We’ll let others prove themselves on huge ascents and wind-exposed pinnacles while we search for the new perspective on a favorite rock (Phoca Rock, named for a seal!); imagine what this place was like before its basalt roof crumbled into the river.

Our approach is to find the quieter places, the ones where you can touch the rocks and the river, or almost. Bring things to human scale; find vistas that feel more like a secret.

And from here our quiet voices feel so powerful.

The closest any of us will get to the waterfall at the end of Oneonta Gorge until... some distant future.

The sun shone through the gorge so brilliantly and beautifully when we came past today that we took advantage of zero traffic and put on our flashers and snapped away.

Right now am at the airport but I’d rather be back in nature. Hiking has become the itch that when scratched only itches even more.
Out here at Crown Point. I endured 167mph winds to take this and almost lost my fave hat... #crownpoint #corbettoregon #sundayvibes #pnw #pnwonderland #views😍 #oregonsunrise #columbiagorge #columbiagorgeous #oregonhikes #oregonhikers #windyaf #nxrdlxrd
