13 miles of hiking • 1500' elevation gain •

Adventurous Young Mazamas hike I forgot to log from a few weeks ago, led by my friend Matt Reeder. The drive started out in a downpour, but it stopped by the time we reached the trailhead. Beautiful day on a trail I have avoided due to popularity. We were initially going to do Whetstone Mountain, but could see that it was not going to be a day for views and we were nervous it was going to snow.
