Before I start today’s review, I want to update you on a few New Year changes for my blog. I am planning on transitioning our blog into a photo blog (more photos with captions, less writing between pics). The reason I’ve decided to take this route is to save time on writing while placing increased focus on our new YouTube channel. The videos take many hours throughout the week to edit, and it’s not feasible to do both while maintaining good quality. We’re working on quality over quantity, so please bear with us on this transition!
On that note, I am going to play catch-up and introduce last week’s video and adventure first. We had a lovely rainy day adventure in Portland, and we hiked Latourell Falls in the Columbia River Gorge. To read more about Latourell Falls, check out this post on the hike I wrote a couple of years ago: https://bigdogtravelblog.com/2017/08/24/hiking-spotlight-latourell-falls/

Our next video adventure is our hike in the old growth forest in Mount Hood National Forest. Roughly one hour east of Portland, this hike is worth the drive for the stunning views, mossy ancient trees, and the swift raging river.

Rating for both hikes:
You really can’t go wrong hiking in the Pacific Northwest. From the mossy trees to the stunning waterfalls, there is beauty for every hiker and their pup to enjoy. I may be a bit bias because I live here, but I think these are some of the best hiking spots in the United States. Both hikes are relatively easy and good for pups of all skill levels. As always, remember to bring plenty of water for your pup to stay hydrated. If an area of the trail looks too hard for your pup to traverse, don’t be afraid to test it and turn around if it’s too tough. I hope you are enjoying our new YouTube content. Let me know what else you would love to see on this channel!
Pin this, pups!
Happy trails pups!
