17.5 miles of hiking • 3250' elevation gain •
Really fine day exploring an area south of Mt Hood that I'd yet to really appreciate. Started at Frog Lake, up to Frog Lake Butte, down past (with a nice appreciation break) Twin Lakes, on to Palmateer Point, through Devils Half-Acre, and up to Barlow Pass before heading back southbound on the PCT. Previous snow had (near) entirely melted, despite ranging up to 5300'. Another great day in the woods!
