9/12/2019 Mirror Lake and Tom Dick and Harry Mountain, Mt Hood, Oregon
Our first time on the rerouted trail to Mirror Lake – the trail is slightly longer than before, but not as steep, and crosses several small streams on new bridges.
Mirror Lake was popular on this not quite fall day.
We continued to the top of Tom Dick and Harry Mountain, and enjoyed clear views of the Cascades north and south while eating our lunch.
There were a few scrappy wildflower blooms hanging on to their petals, and tinges of autumn on the vine maples and huckleberries.
Hike #43, 7.4 miles, 1600 feet.
I pulled this sweater yarn out of the hibernating pile, measured and swatched a bit, and recast on….we’ll see how it goes.
