    After 8 years of working thru Lorain's A Foot & A Field Port

    After 8 years of working thru Lorain's A Foot & A Field Portland/Vancouver hiking book (First Edition), I have finally completed all 148 hikes. I have written in this book as a journal, logging dates, weather, who I hiked with, and notes from each and every hike.

    As a new hiker back in 2004, the book was an excellent guide and got me out into areas I've never been in. My two good hiking buddies loved working thru the book with me. I fell in love with hiking and have since summited 11 peaks in the area.

    My first hike in the book was Herman Creek and my last hike was Huffman Peak Loop. My favorite hikes were Silver Star, Siouxon Creek and Central Gales Creek. The hikes in Lorain's book gave me some of the best lunch spots in the NW, fabulous huck and blueberry patches, spectacular wildflowers, awesome scenery and many miles of tromping.

    I want to thank Douglas Lorain for his book and the many great memories those hikes gave me. I want to thank him for the amazing adventures I was able to experience.

    Mucking around in the NW

    I love this hiking guide! I don't even have to travel too far - very comprehensive as it covers the Portland Metro area including those hard to find and forgotten gems in southern Washington. Includes a field guide of commonly seen vegetation and wildlife. Great format to see at a glance what to expect on the hike such as if dogs are allowed, if parking fees are required, and what to expect strenuously.
