Is being felt everywhere these days.
Reese Witherspoon's film Wild (based on Cheryl Strayed's PCT book of the same name) opens in the United States on December 5, 2014. Yes, of course I am going. Out of curiosity. And because the trailer looks good. And because the movie was filmed largely in Oregon and partly in its State Parks, and the Columbia River Gorge (my new stomping grounds). And because even I am feeling a little bit of the Wild Effect. It turns out the effects are not all that bad!

I realize that I haven't posted in well over a year--and there are definitely a few things to catch up on--but I wanted to post now because I am excited to share that I will be giving another public presentation soon. And, for the first time, in the Columbia River Gorge.
I am teaming up with my cohorts at the Army Corps of Engineers, Bonneville Lock and Dam for a presentation on Sunday, November 30, 2014 at 2 PM at the Bradford Island Visitor Center (access from the Oregon side.) Just shy of a week before Wild opens. Details to come.
I'd love to see you there, talk a little Trail, and give you a sneak peek into scenes to be on the lookout for in the new movie.
Until then . . . Bacon Bit
