Dog Mountain

Saturday, June 11, 2011
Leader: Becky Lipton
Hike: 6.9 miles, 2820 ft (Difficult)

Three very lucky hikers were greeted with the best wildflower display that this hike leader has seen in 10 years of seeking the perfect wildflower display on Dog Mountain! The primarily sunflower-like balsom root was in peak display, with larkspur, Indian paintbrush, lavender flox, chocolate fritilaria, Oregon sunshine and many other species gracing the huge meadows. Gorgeous views of the Columbia Gorge from the top. Apparently other wildflower seekers were suspecting a special treat as well, as there were more than 120 vehicles at the trailhead and hikers from Seattle to eastern Oregon were descending the mountain with expressions of ecstacy and other worldly expressions on their faces!

Members: Lipton, Becky, Jacobsen, Janet, Cross, Don.
