This was a long but rewarding day on one of Oregon's best hikes. The wildflowers were at their peak so most of us were pulling out our cameras to photograph the meadows carpeted with lupine and paintbrush. At the top of Opie Dilldock pass six of us continued to the 7500 foot summit of Collier Cone, while the remaining three hiked to the overlook. On the hike out Rob and Arjen decided to run up four in one cone, while the rest of us continued hiking out. By the end of the day most of us had logged at least 16 miles. I'm also happy to report that mosquito season seems to be over.Members: Steven Johnson, Laurie Funkhouser, Gary Spizizen, Kate Parrish, Becky Lipton, Chris Stockdale.
