Thanksgiving Day C.W.D.
Wahkeena Creek, in between Bridal Veil and Multnomah Falls.
Looking over all the maps today, it seems we may not have gone all the way to "Devils Rest". The trail continued (a loop trail to Angels Rest), but we turned back after these viewpoints. It seems there is a hill slightly back from the gorge edge which rises another two hundred feet. That may be the actual Devils Rest, but there may be no viewpoints there. We met two groups of people arguing over maps/guide-books/cell-phones. It seems each group had come from opposite directions on the trail and neither had yet found Devils Rest.
After we left them, we found these viewpoints less than a quarter mile further on and we decided this was it.
Best guess, we did about 7 miles round trip. Even Toby was walking slow as we got back to the car. One minor blister on the back of the left heel, so we survived pretty good. (my heel, not his)
