 Their day started innocently enough last Friday, going to their usual classes, but for sixteen of Catlin Gabel's finest it ended with an evening ascent to the summit of Chinadere Mountain near Mt. Hood.  From their lofty (and foggy perch) the students began a three day descent of the complete length of Eagle Creek all the way to the Columbia River.  

Along the way the group wandered through ancient Douglas fir and hemlock forests and camped under the stars.  On Saturday a few hours were spent swimming and exploring the joys of Eagle Creek.
