Lowder Mountain

Sunday, August 7, 2011
Leader: Judy Terry
Hike: 5.6 miles, 900 ft (Moderate)

The hike provided all the highlights one could have hoped for. We had perfect weather, a blue sky, comfortable temperatures and no mosquitos to speak of. The flowers were abundant. Here are a few varieties- tiger lily, columbine, lupine, paintbrush, bear grass, vanilla leaf, wild rose, and skyrocket gilia. There were still large patches of snow off the trail as we approached the top. We made our way across the summit plateau to the view point. The hike was capped off by one of the clearest views of the Cascade Range I've ever seen. Mt. Hood was very clear and prominent in the distance.
