I had the opportunity to join my brother Colin, Kristin (bro's girlfriend), and sister Lindsey on a little 3 night 4 day backpacking trip on the Timberline Trail, which is a trail that goes all the way around the perimeter of Mt. Hood. It's about 40 miles, but with all my little sidetrips for photos and a few wrong turns, it was probably closer to 50 miles in the end.
Not sure how to describe the whole experience with words, so good thing I brought 3 cameras along. :)
I was trying to do one giant post with photos from the entire time but I quickly realized that it was too much, so I'm splitting it up into single days!
Day 1 (super late start so it was less than a half day):
First glimpse of wildflowers (lupine)-
I took a few self portraits on top of this sweet ridge, I was happy to be outside finally!
Not sure what this plant is, but it's everywhere!
That completes some favorites from my pro camera, now here are a few from my snapshot camera.
The start (I didn't sleep a single second the night before and had been up for about 48 hours, I was basically a walking zombie... Then hiked 6 miles on no sleep... eeek.
That's it for Day 1... more coming soon so stay tuned!
