When I turned 50 in 2012 I hiked to the summit of South Sisters with my hubby. I said I'd never do it again! One thing turned into another and my daughter, Rene, and niece, Hannah and myself found ourselves Wednesday morning taking off up to the summit of South Sisters (of officially called Charity) One member of our hiking party could not make it and I was sad about that.
But up the hill we went!
Don"t we look chipper?
The view kept getting better and better the higher we hiked.
Here are the other two Sisters mountains from the summit. (Mt Hood in the background)
Yay! Made it to 10,358 ft elevation with a gain of about 5600' in 6.5 miles. It was brutal!
Coming down was almost harder than going up.
Sometimes we couldn't even find the trail.
It feels so good to accomplish something really, really BIG!
Have a wonderful weekend! I'll be iceing my knees!! LOL
