Mt. Defiance

weather looks great, wild flowers are out, and we got some time in the morning so we'll be heading up Mt. Defiance via the Old Defiance Trail. Thought I'd toss this out in case anyone else is interested.
Stats are:
Distance: 11 miles round trip
Elevation Gain: 4935 ft
Highest Point: 5584 ft
pace will be moderate, I'll have my 9 yr. old along. If you can do Si, Teneriffe, Mailbox, or similar hikes you'll be fine. If you want to know more I think there's an earlier report here in the SOA archives so you could check that or just google it.

    perfect hiking weather with mystical passages of fog in the woods and a sunny summit with ever changing views

    Ana - we'll start hiking 8/8:30, say 6-7hr. hike, add a little buffer time, I would say 5-6pm return time.
    (I'm a little hesitant to write that in stone however given that it's a hike, and it's a hike on meetup, so there's always the potential of unknown factors...)

    Linda - Mason Lake trailhead
    Janine - happy healing

    We were also considering McClellan Butte, but the mosquitoes seem a little less ferocious across the way on the South facing slopes i.e. Defiance et al

    I really wanted to do Mt Defiance but I just did Mailbox and my knees are dead. . . will have to try to do that one another time.
