|cmc56789||Route Climbed: Hamilton Mountain trail Date Climbed: March 16, 2005|
|I did this one to kick off my spring break from classes. It was pretty windy, at times the rain was blowing sideways, and I nearly lost my footing in a few of the treeless areas. No views this time, but on the bright side I had the mountain and some refreshing beverages to myself! I saw one hiker coming down about a third of the way up. Pretty cold and wet considering the summer in march conditions we have been having.|

|I hiked up this one first, then headed up Wind and Dog Mtns later the same day. Nobody else was on the trail, but it was a Tuesday. The Gorge is nicer during the week.|

|Made the 165 mile drive to the TH for this one today. Lotsa people on this summerlike day in March. Unbelievable weather. An enjoyable hike with nice views of Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams and did I mention tons of people. If you'd like solittude on a nice weekend, this isn't the trail. |
330 miles for 8 miles of trail. Yup, it was worth it.

|This is a nice little jaunt. Me and a buddy hit the trail at 1:30pm and returned to the car at 5:30pm with an hour-plus at the falls, summit, and cliffy areas. It was a wonderfully sunny day with little to no wind, affording fews of Adams, Hood, and the Gorge peaks. The wild flowers are begining to come out.|
Hit this one at non-peak times to avoid the masses. It was a circus on the way up to the falls, but the decent was surprisingly quiet.

|I think I may have climbed this one earlier than 1985 but the first time I logged it was 3/3/85. I've done it at least 18 times since (that I've written down) and it's always a great trip, especially challenging in snow or with an east wind blowing!|

|Guess I'll be the first to sign the log on this one...|
We've done this great hike a total of 4 times I think in the 4 years we've been in Oregon. Always fun! The summit is a bit brushy & I think the best views can be had from a couple of spots below the summit.
