Group expedition  Sucess!

Hiked up with the dogs and a group of historians and archaeologists. Dogs got way too hot and there is not any water along the route. Ran out much quicker than I expected. Hot and exposed in the summer. But, man, great views. Also an interesting old fire lookout at top.

12 peaks in 2 days  Sucess!

A solo trip which I started with Misery Ridge at Smith Rock. From there I stopped for a hike up Black Butte on my way to Crater Lake. At the lake I hiked up the 5 primary peaklets around the lake and a few minor ones before driving to Yamsay Mountain for the final hike. See the trip report.

Acclimatization Hike  Sucess!

Hike from the lower trailhead. Great views, and very interesting history of the fire observatory activities.

nice trail  Sucess!

another short outing while in Bend. I was surprised by the number of people out on this trail. Interesting old forest service lookout on top. The view of Mt Jefferson is impressive. I definitely support going early if it is summer as it can get toasty on the trail

Memorial Day Wknd  Sucess!

Nearly 200 hikers on the mountain with me. The FS is discouraging people from going near the tower and staff yurt.

With the fam  Sucess!

Hiked the 10-miler with my parents and grandparents as well as a few cousins and my brother. It was my grandparents' 50th anniversary. Awesome that they're still crushing backcountry!

Nice hike, but hot  Sucess!

Nice hike, but the sun was bearing down on me at 11am. Probably around 90 degrees. Great clear views from the top.

Beautiful  Sucess!

Nice short hike with great views. I got a decent workout in by carrying my one-year old daughter up to the top. Was nice to enjoy some October sunshine.

Worth it  Sucess!

We stopped by to hike this summit on the way back to Washington, and it was very much worth it. Nice quick hike with panoramic views. Only took an hour to get up - only draw back is the nasty dirt road to get up to the TH.

Great bang for your buck, so to speak :)  Sucess!

Much steeper grade than we expected, but gorgeous. It was an early spring day, windy and with grey clouds that covered the tips of the peaks all around us, but that somehow suited the hike perfectly. Great little dayhike.

Black Butte  Sucess!

Nice little hike up to the top of this one. We were able to see South and North Sister, Mount Washington, as well as Mount Jefferson but the views were very obscured in the haze of recent forest fires.

Nice quick peak tag  Sucess!

Great fast hike up and a nice run down. Beautiful frost on the buildings at the top. Top was socked in, so not really any spectacular views.

Burning Dan  Sucess!

While on a trip to Oregon to climb Mt. Jefferson and Broken Top I decided to climb a bonus volcano just for fun. Crappy road but it is worth it for a nice trail with expansive views.

Consolation Prize  Sucess!

After failing to climb South Sister due to weather more reminiscent of the middle of winter, then of June, we stopped and hiked to the top of Black Butte and checked out the lookout towers and the view. Watched the storm clouds blow in across the lands below.

added to every trip to Sisters  Sucess!

I have hiked to the Black Butte Lookout many times over the past couple of years. It is a great, short hike with rewarding views.
