Steep but worthwhile  Sucess!

cloudy  Sucess!

Stopped on my way to Vancouver, had been driving past this one for years and finally got around to hiking it.

Trail  Sucess!

Quick, easy, scenic. Getting to the true summit was unpleasant.

Winter bliss  Sucess!

Did this one in the snow, from the TH to the summit. I found myself nearly alone at the top, and picked a clear day for great views! The wind made things a little colder, but tucked back near the trees on the South-face I found great protection while enjoying the views.

Scenic route  Sucess!

Took the "easy" route. Enjoyed the scenery and the standard Black Butte Poter at the top.

My Mountain  Sucess!

Summitted My Mountain with my Dad in icy conditions. Good thing I have built in crampons. My first major mountain. Not too bad for a 28 pound 4 month old, eh? Suck it, you city Pomeranians!

Did it again in the flowers 5/31/09. Again in the snow 3/14/10. I own this place!

Great flower display. Also hiked up the following weekend in wet weather.

Great workout with out Dog...  Sucess!

Beautiful day and much less crowded then other times we've done this hike. We took the more difficult option up and stayed cool in the shade. Enjoyed amazing views of Mt.Hood and Helens along the way and enjoyed a snack at the top. The dog loved it!

End of Springbreak

Weighted down pack gave me a good workout. My girlfriend spanked me on this one (not literally). We took the 3.7 mile route that put us in the shade and snow, but it wasn't too bad.

Crowded  Sucess!

Don't go here when apparently the Mazama's where having some sort of convention. And whats with the backpacks full of climbing gear? Seriously, pickets, and ropes?

Snowshoe...  Sucess!

Had the summit to myself...
How many time can you say that about Dog Mountain.
The snow at the summit was over 7' deep.

Dog Mountain  Sucess!

Great day hike, wildflowers were near their peak.

No Flowers  Sucess!

Quick trip to the top and back home by 12:30 PM

Augspurger/Dog Loop  Sucess!

One of the best wildflower displays I have ever seen. Continuing to Augspurger was a great idea and the best way to avoid the crowds. I came back in the winter and getting to the true summit was a lot different without a trail or even footprints. I need to explore the east side of the mountain. I've seen cliffs from I-84 that are far from the trails.

Easier than thought  Sucess!

With Brian in the morning, then went and did Wind afterwards.

Memorial Day hike with all of Portland  Sucess!

Hot day, especially when starting at 11AM and still recovering from the previous nights celebrations. No shortage of people on this trail, especially at the top (rough estimate: ~200 people encountered). Following the loop which towards Augspurger resulted in significantly fewer other hikers than on the main trail. The wild flowers at the top were spectacular and worth the climb, I would recommend avoiding Dog on summer Holidays.

Steep trail  Sucess!

Took the steep scenic trail from the parking lot near the gorge. Wildflowers were out in full force. Nice, challenging hike. Up and down in 3.5 hours.
