This one isn’t about Portland hikes, but rather a Portland hiking company: Embark Adventures, whom I work for.
Embark is mainly about Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro and trekking in the Himalayas, but today we announced the trip lineup for 2013 and the start of 2014. It’s a remarkable set of trips — Nepal, Bhutan, Kilimanjaro, wildlife safaris — and new for this year is trekking in Patagonia.
