TOLLGATE — “It was intense. We didn’t even have a trail. We didn’t know what we were getting ourselves into,” Lisa Matiaco said, remembering that first hike for the Walla Walla Hiking club. The she added, “It was awesome.” Club leader Joe Jacobs admits the inaugural hike was a challenge. “Juniper Dunes was kind of tough. It was a little overly ambitious where we wanted to go because I wanted to get back to where the old growth junipers were. And when you are hiking in sand dunes, it looks like there is no elevation, but you are going up the dunes and down the dunes,” Jacobs said.
