Description of Hike:
What a day! Started out hiking to Hawk Mountain, which was beautiful with the views of Mt Jefferson

and all the wildflowers in bloom.

We got up to Hawk Mountain and spent some time eating lunch and enjoying the cabin.

Read the log book and left an entry. Interesting stories people have about the place!

Hiked back down and took quite a few pictures. The wildflowers were spectacular! On the way home, decided to make a small detour and do the Mt Lowe trail, since it was only about a half mile each way.

On the way, saw a big elk right in the middle of the road! By the time I found my camera, he was long gone. Got to what I thought was the trailhead for Mt Lowe, and the directions weren’t too good, but still ended up finding the trail and getting to the top. Interesting place with a wonderful view. By the time we got home, both of us were pretty tired….
