Powell Butte late fall hike | Milwaukie Family Photographer

A beautiful fall day, deep golden leaves, and a family eager to venture a new trail led us all on a brisk hike on Powell Butte. Along the way there were caterpillars, leaves, dirt (in hands, on clothes, and maybe on a face or two), found walking sticks and even some hand holding. With the anticipation of a snack at the end, we all quickly moved the last half-mile! Afterwards, running through fields with the beautiful Mt. Hood gracing the background made for a magical morning. I am excited to share some of my favorite moments with you below.
