Located just across the Columbia from Hood River, the Coyote Wall and Catherine Creek areas are popular hiking and mountain biking destinations. Scenic vistas, rolling oak woodlands, dramatic basalt cliffs and a proliferation of wildflowers in the spring draw many trail users from throughout the region.

With generous support from a National Forest Foundation Grant and Skamania Lodge, WTA is working in partnership with the Forest Service and other trail user groups to plan and complete trail restoration projects.

The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
