Horsepasture Mountain

September 15, 2007

We had a last minute change of plans. “Cycle Oregon” was monopolizing the Old McKenzie Highway and vehicles were off limits. More than a dozen times since 1980 I have led the hike up Scott Mountain by way of Hand Lake. Rain and snow prevented us from reaching the summit in the past but this was something the weatherman couldn’t have predicted.

After a short consultation we decided to go to Horsepasture Mountain just south of McKenzie Bridge. The weather cooperated and we had a magnificent view of the Cascade peaks from the 5,660-foot summit. There were still a few flowers in bloom including purple asters and Indian paintbrush. We topped off the day by hiking a few extra miles on the Olallie Ridge Trail.

Those enjoying the sunshine on this fine September day were Max Brown, Lubos Hubata-Vacek, Art Kearney, Becky Lipton, Lynne Moody, Carol Stout and leader Dave Predeek.
