Crescent Mountain

Wednesday, July 25, 2012
Leader: Robert Smythe
Hike: 8.6 miles, 2200 ft (Moderate)

Conditions were perfect for a walk up Crescent Mountain. Wildflowers were still abundant - vanilla leaf and bunchberry bloomed in the lower forest; the meadows featured columbine, scarlet gilia, owl clover, cascade lily, and even some remaining beargrass; and penstemon occupied cracks in the rock near the top.

We shared the summit with one other hiker, the only one seen all day. All the peaks were in view, from Mt. Hood south to Diamond Peak. The descent went quickly, and we were back at our Sweet Home rendezvous by 4 pm.

Members: Robert Smythe, Brad Bennett, Chris Stockdale.
