April 21, 2013: Columbia Hills, Horsethief Butte, & Catherine Creek, Washington

This was three destinations in one day: a hike to the top of Stacker Butte at the Columbia Hills Natural Area Preserve that was aborted due to unpleasant west winds and temperatures in the 40s; a quick scramble around Horsethief Butte; and a casual stroll on the paved path at Catherine Creek.
