Babcock Bench – Evergreen Creek – Columbia River

Babcock Bench – Evergreen Creek – Columbia River

It had been around two weeks since we were last in the area and did the Babcock Bench Loop which had up to 3′ of snow and multiple snow slides at an amazing 800′ elevation in the desert. There was more snow than I have ever seen in the area in the 15 years I have been hiking here and two weeks later no snow and dry dirt as we moved farther South on the Babcock Bench trail to Evergreen Creek (right below the Gorge Amphitheater) and followed it down to the eastern shore of the very wide Columbia River. The trip was scenic as usual with easy hiking we followed the shoreline across the creek and up its South side back to the Babcock Bench trail and returned.
