I hiked from Lake Wahtum to Chinidere Mountain with Rob and Ted E. Bear (a standard poodle). The weather was great, as was the scenery: clear views of Mount St. Helens, Mount Rainier, Mount Adams, Mount Hood, Mount Jefferson, and a peek at the Three Sisters.
This hike is worth repeating.1Though there are so many other great hikes, I might not. Sorry for getting all scientific with the flowers’ names. ;-) I will sleep well tonight and that hot shower this evening was especially nice. :-)
