Misery Ridge evening hike, See sunset from top of the ridge---Level 4

This is a repeat of a hike Aaron did in late April.  Weather forecast for this area on the 21st is clear and highs in mid 80's. Bring at least one liter of water and food for the wait till sunset at the top.
 We will hike along the river to monkey face and climb to the ridge from that side.  There are Rattlesnakes in this area so stay in the center of the trail and watch where you step, sit or place your hands.  Bring a wind breaker---the climb to the top will produce a sweat and the evening breezes can chill you and force you to descend alone which is not a good idea.  Bring your Camera even if there is some smoke haze there should be lots of red to the sunset.

  BRING YOUR HEADLAMPS.  There should be reasonable lighting for our descent but one never knows for sure and you want to see where you are stepping---remember those snakes tend to move around as the sun goes down and it cools off.

No dogs.   Share gas cost with your driver.

    I have been nursing a bum knee for a couple of weeks and was hopeful that it would be ready for Misery Ridge in time. I don't think it is, so I will give up my spot to someone on the waiting list. I will be there in spirit! Have fun.

    I live in Tumalo and am planning to drive straight there. I have an Smith Rock annual pass. I'm driving a Mazda 3 hatchback with bike racks and my cell is[masked] to make sure we can find each other at the parking lot. I'll look for you all at the parking lot dispenser as well!

      Shoot! I just realized I have to give a webinar from 4:30-5:30 so I prob won't make it in time. :-( Just updated my RSVP so that others can get off the waiting list.

    I have been wanting to do this! I will meet you there! My husband is the campground host in the bivouac area so I will stay the night there.. If that works, tell me the time and place.. (Maybe in front of the yurt?)
