Subalpine flowers at their exuberant peak and great views of Mt. Hood from the southeast. Practice your best 'Sound of Music' renditions for this one!
Bring binoculars and cameras: this is a ramble more than a hike. Pace 1.5 miles/hour, or slower (including breaks). Feel free to stop and photograph vistas, watch for birds, or track elk and coyote.
Brewpub to follow.
Wilderness area regulation restricts attendance to 12 heartbeats, so no dogs (that would be one less person). If you are interested, please add your name to the waiting list. I will manually add people to the "yes" list. People who have hiked with me before will get preferential treatment. Meet at 7:00 AM, back around 8:00 PM (Sunrise 5:42 AM Sunset: 8:52 PM).
