The hike up Mt. Hood yesterday was very tough. (another page with info.) It's roughly half the distance and elevation of our goal. There were seemingly thousands of wildflowers along the trail, but I didn't really enjoy them until the way down. :) The view from the top was spectacular, and we could see all the way to San Francisco. The best thing is that we weren't dying at the end, so I think our frequent hikes are starting to pay off.
I took pictures.
