Picture of the Week: Hiking Along the Clackamas River Trail

4 03 2013

For the first time in the history of this website, the picture of the week was not taken by yours truly. But it was taken by my girlfriend, with my camera, and I’m in it. So it’s close. This is from last week’s hike along the Clackamas River Trail up to Pup Creek Falls. The trip served a few purposes: Get the GPS tracks of this hike for the Hiking Waterfalls in Oregon guidebook, and get photos of KEEN’s brand new line of CNX shoes and sandals for the company’s upcoming ad campaign. This was my first venture into the world of male modeling and I think I did well. I took direction like a champ and I kept my face out of the frame. Photo courtesy of Stephanie Paris.
