Annual Banquet 2024

Enjoy good food and the company of your fellow club members at our Annual Banquet.

Our speaker, hiking guidebook author Craig Romano, will give us some tips for exploring the beautiful Columbia River Gorge on foot based on his new book Day Hiking Columbia River Gorge, 2nd Edition. With his trademark enthusiasm and expertise, Craig will lead you throughout the Gorge, including Silver Star Scenic Area, Trapper Creek Wilderness, Cottonwood Canyon State Park, and more, with information on Eagle Creek as well as select waterfront hikes in The Dalles and Hood River. Come see a slideshow and get inspired to explore the many scenic paths and waterfalls of this iconic destination!

It should be a great evening!
