Tom Dick and Harry July 2022

Beautiful Saturday hike to Tom Dick and Harry Ridge via Mirror Lake Trail #644. Mostly tree covered so the temps where good. Because of the lake lots of mesquittos. The view from the top is totally worth it and pretty damn amazing. You can see Mt. Hood, Mt. Jefferson, Mt. Rainier and Mt. Adams. Probably more on a clear day.

Hidden Lake Trail #779 June 2021

A month before I hiked this trail and near the lake the snow was deep and difficult. I did make it to the lake. This time the snow was melted so I tried to get further up the trail this time.

Snow in the Mountains Still

A perfect spring weekend around Portland. Sunday I heated towards Mt. Hood for some hiking. Hike some of the Hidden Lake trail till I lost my way in the snow and turned back. Great small little lake. Very peaceful on a perfect day to be outside.

Road Side Adventure

With the weather starting to change and me getting really boarded of quarantine it was time to get out of the house and do something in nature for a change.

Hunting for my Own Christmas Tree

For a minimal fee you can cut your own Christmas tree on national forest land. The trick is getting out to where the trees are and not falling off the road. Don’t expect a pristine tree but if you go for the adventure, its well worth it.
