Another beautiful day for a hike. Drive to the TH was 2 hours. A bit chilly at the start at 41 F, but quickly warmed up into the high 60s. TH is a fee parking area.
Two interesting large sections of blow down on the way up, but the trail was clear and in good shape. We stopped for lunch at 12:45 at our high point about 750' below the summit on the scree slope. Excellent views from McLoughlin (in a bit of smoke) to Bachelor, the Sisters and Washington and Jefferson in the far distance. Back to the car around 3:30 followed by a quick stop at the Rogue River Lodge.
