This is an all day, stop-and-go ramble. Climb through three ecozones to the best south-side Mt. Hood alpine meadows at Paradise Park. Bring binoculars and cameras. Pace averages 1.5 mi/hr, including lots of breaks. Feel free to stop and photograph flowers, watch for birds, or track elk and coyote.
Wilderness area regulation restricts attendance to 12 heartbeats, so no dogs - that would be one less person.
Brewpub to follow.
Meet at 7:00 AM, back around 8:00 PM (Sunrise 6:15 AM Sunset 8:14 PM)
