We finally had a good day yesterday to get out and enjoy the clear skies and warmer weather. Porter is also my running companion. He loves a good mountain view too. <vbg>


We passed a lot of wildflowers on the way up. Unfortunately my macro shots didn't turn out, but here is lovely wild flocks putting on a show in the desert.
The mountain view was amazing...
Mount Jefferson to the west
.
Mount Hood to the north

Part of the Three Sisters range toward the southwest.

This was such a pleasurable way to get in some activity and enjoy the outdoors.

  2. Wow! Great day and wonderful views. We have more in common than I thought. I also have a German Shepherd, Luc. Porter is a beauty! Dogs are the big hikers I know!
