Penstock Pipeline Hike

Lori and I started by driving over to the Moser area to do a flower hike but found the wind a bit over powering so we went for a plan B and returned once again to hike the Penstock Pipeline. This is a short and rather unconventional hike a top a historic old pipe that supplies water to one of the first hydroelectric plants built in Oregon. On the top of the pipe you get some great views of the Hood River. I like seeing the evolution of out industrial age as the pipe changes from steel banded wood to riveted iron to more modern welded steel. After our short adventure along the pipe we went to lunch at Thunder Island Brewery.
