Disappointed by the unexpected closing of the lower half of the Latourell loop trail, I took to observing the finer details of the verdant path to the upper falls in the hopes of making my 4:30am wakeup call worth the while (jury’s still out…I love sleep!). I was hoping to find a patch of more pristine foliage for another texture study, but the emergence of a pair of enchanter’s nightshade plants amongst a wind-shielded patch of sourgrass was too good to pass up. The burgeoning competition for springtime light in the Columbia River Gorge is keen, but it’s the eyes of trail patrons that are the ultimate winners.
