The most beautiful hike I've ever done. Such differing terrain (mostly uphill and quite a bit of rock) and shaded slopes, it was absolutely thrilling. The view at the top though was the best. So many beautiful animals along the way, too-- if you're hiking in the Columbia River Gorge, you HAVE to do Angel's Rest.
