Mt. Hood

For a change of pace in early August, I drove to the east side of Mt. Hood below the Meadows Ski Resort.

Since it was going to get hot, I decided to hike up into the alpine meadows after a short walk over to Umbrella Falls.

After visiting the Falls, I began the pleasant 1 1/4-mile hike up to the Timberline Trail. I originally had planned to hike 2 1/2 miles north to Heather Canyon. But, it was very hot and humid. Instead, I explored some of the alpine meadows near the Timberline Trail. Many of the wildflowers were at their prime, especially around the creeks flowing down the mountain.

A very nice hike indeed!
