Travelling from Bend to Portland, today was planned to be all about Mount Hood.  Nature had other plans.  Mount Hood was cold, rainy, and no place we wanted to hike when we had the chance.  Luckily we stopped at Smith Rock State Park in Terrebonne, about 30 minutes north of Bend.  When planning this trip I under estimated Smith Rock.  It was awesome!  Had we known Mount Hood was going to be a washout, we would have hiked the aptly named Misery Trail.  Instead we walked the trails down into the gorge and along the river thinking we did not have time for a strenuous 4 hour hike.  We might need to come back someday for that one.

We arrived in Portland ahead of schedule so we used the time to stock up on supplies and get ready for our final days in Oregon.
