Olallie Mountain

Friday, July 5, 2013
Leader: Chris Stockdale
Hike: 7.2 miles, 1200 ft (Moderate)

We couldn't have ask for a more perfect day for this beautiful hike. After a week of blistering heat, the cool mountain air with refreshing breezes was close to heaven. Many wildflowers were coming into their own; in the lower elevations we found pink rhododendrons, many beargrass blooms, bunch berry and other woodland flowers. As we gained elevation into the more open areas, we found Tiger lilies, Columbine, Larkspur, Penstemon and a few Indian paintbrush. On top the Cats Ears covered the ground. From the shelter the views extended from Mount Hood to Diamond Peak. Much to our surprise, there were no mosquitoes. What a glorious day! Thanks to Lisa, Dick and Chris for driving.
