Pittsburg Landing Part 3 (The Hike)

The trail began easily enough on flat, grassy terrain. Then quite suddenly it began to rise among the rocks. At the top on the right, where the rock juts up, the trail took a turn for the worse (for us). It became steep, narrow and loaded with loose rocks. Becoming too treacherous and slippery for older, unbalanced folks like us we turned back. Even the short hike was lovely and invigorating!

Below is a picture of the trail on the opposite side of the river in Oregon. Just to the left of the tree you can see some 'fill' of rocks holding the trail in place. If you click on that you can get a close-up look at the trail!

That looks kind of scary! I'm glad you were careful.

I am glad you both had the wisdom to turn back from the steep rocky trail. I would hate to lose you to the bottom of the canyon, my friend. Great posts!
