Browder Ridge is a great wildflower hike plus so much more.
Fifteen of us hiked under distant cloudy but sunny skies through
old-growth forests, steep-sloped wildflower meadows, and hillsides
of waist-high braken ferns.
Rock walls uphill and steep dropoffs downhill added even more variety
to the hike.
We were treated to views of the Cascade snowpeaks intermittently along
the route with a 360 degree grand finale view of the peaks at the top
including an obscured view of Mt. Hood.
Many thanks to Max for finding the way to the summit after the trail
becomes very faint to non-existent near the top.
Thanks also to the drivers.
