Mt. Washington

Sunshine and crisp air at the Pacific Crest Trail south of Santiam Pass.

I was looking forward to a grand view of Mt. Washington at the 5 1/2 mile mark, and a great view it was. The western summit of the mountain dominated the horizon.

The next destination was exploring some large meadows. Elk tracks and a few bear tracks were scattered along the trail, but the animals were successful in staying hidden from my camera’s telephoto lens.

I did spot a few mule deer, including a small buck. They seemed to know that deer season opened the following day.

A truly enjoyable day in the wilderness.

Into the Wilderness

Mule Deer love the shadows

Easy to spot the trail blazes in the burned-out area
