We saw a break in the weather and it turned out to be one of the best nights out in snow. 80% moon. Hoping for lots more like it this winter.

Illumination Rock

8 miles of hiking • 3750' elevation gain •

Wanted to backpack Saturday night, but rain and wind on Hood sounded less than ideal. So Kevin plotted the idea to head to Illumination Rock and we made it! Gorgeous new snow and ice on the rocks!

Went up the Climbers Trail, spent the night and continued up to Palmer, headed west and down to the Timberline Trail and back to the lodge. Possibly the best time on the mountain this summer!

Broken Top Loop

Well, I got nailed by mosquito and ant bites with long sleeves and long pants. Errggg. Other than that, No Name Lake was possibly the most beautiful scene we have ever encountered.

Plan B to Sandy River crossing

10 miles of hiking • 750' elevation gain • 1 night

Our original plan was to catch some stars at Trillium Lake, but a traffic fatality by Rhododendron changed our plans. Since we were night hiking, we chose the route from the closed bridge to the Sandy crossing on the Ramona Falls trail and spent the night off the trail. Micro spikes would have helped, but we left them in the car. This Is a perfect reason to have maps. We were able to figure out Plan B with them.
