Lowder Mountain

August 11, 2009

The trail to Lowder Mountain is always a bit of a challenge because of the waist-high plants overgrowing and obscuring the trail, and this year we also contended with damage to the trail from horses. Nevertheless, our group of seven made it without incident to the top where we enjoyed lunch in a spectacular setting. The mountains from Mt. Jefferson to Mt. Bachelor were visible, although smoke from forest fires to the south made the views hazy, especially to the east. The visibility improved even during the short time we were there. Perfect temperatures, no mosquitoes, no sprained ankles — Lowder Mountain is always a good trip. Enjoying the outing were members Brad Bennett, Walt Dolliver, Sharon and Jim Duncan, new member Jim Gillings, Susan Sanazaro, and nonmember Ron Allen (completing his 3rd Obsidian hike).
