We’ve developed a new ritual: taking lights out into the winter night and watching the moon rise above the bigleaf maples and Douglas-firs. When the moon is full and the sky is clear, the waterfalls glow in the light so much that the moon is all we need.
We plant a number of luminaries, little lights we’ll pick up as we return back down the trail in reverse. .
February we call the Shoulder-to-shoulder around the fire moon. The ritual for this moon is one of coming together to find comfort as we see through the end of winter and look to the spring to come. Of planning which seeds to plant and blazing the path toward future abundance. We’ll spend some time of quiet commune, and then talk together about our plans for the future.
Monday, the 18th of February and Tuesday, the 19th of February. Pickup central Portland — SE 9th and Main — at 5:30 p.m.; the General Store in downtown Troutdale at 6:00 p.m. (depending on traffic). We’ll be home a little before 10 p.m. Can’t meet us in Portland and want to meet out on our trail? Let us know!
The trail itself will be revealed the day of the hike; we’ll make it appropriate for children as young as five (and younger at your judgment). It’s likely 1.5 to 3 miles in total. Our first tours are priced for love over money; you’re free to bring a cash donation, or some token of your affection for us, or just your magical presence, that’s wonderful! Just use the code GRATIS and bring your contribution (yes even if it’s just your lovely self) along the night of the tour.
Please bring lights if you have them, along with warm clothes, warm socks, waterproof shoes that can handle a little mud! We’ll have a bunch of light, and lots of headlamps, but we can always use more!
March, April and May dates are set. More information coming soon!
