Todays goal is to cross around Mt Hood and descend the other side. The ridges carved in the mountain by eons of snow melts make it look like it has legs. I’ll be crossing those ravines and streams this morning.
I documented my thoughts at the first stream crossing this morning
It turns out that I found an even better crossing place here
Looking upstream I saw a nice waterfall
At a water refill spot I found a very peaceful creek
I found a new flower today, well new to me anyways
My second stream crossing was made radio by those who came before me – the creek was fast and wide and had few rocks poking out of the waterline
Thankfully, someone tied some logs together to make a bridge
In the early afternoon I came to the Ramona Falls Trail-this used to be the PCT route until it was closed to horses due to slides. It takes you to The stunning Ramona Falls
This fall was mesmerizing because of all the different routes the water travels from top to bottom.
Today was also berry day. In addition to Huckleberries, I found Salmon Berries
Which I tasted and did not like that much.
And two other berries that I did not taste:
Just before I arrived at my campsite, I was rewarded with a last look at Mt Hood
Thanks for reading!
