Lower Starvation Loop Hike, June 10, 2018 (hike #36)
We did this hike in early May last year, in the rain, with rainbows, and with early spring flowers. This year it was still a bit rainy, but we managed to hike on a wet weekend when Mt Hood actually received more snow! We saw the late spring flowers – always interesting to see what blooms next. And our daughter, temporarily home from college before heading off for her summer adventures, joined us. I got to practice my uphill in a steep section, but the hike was much shorter than last week. And I don’t think my new treatment regimen gave me any setback at all, so Yay! (3.2 miles, 800 feet)

I finished cross stitching the Elgol scene, and removed the guidelines.
Next I will decide how to frame it. And get started on one of two new cross stitch projects waiting in the wings.
I find the focused attention of counted cross stitching soothing these days. I also ordered fabric to make a baby quilt for our niece.
