We had a great hike at Mirror Lake/Tom, Dick and Harry Ridge! The sun never came out, but we still had a grand time. Ten ladies and three dogs made up the hiking troup.
In November, on Saturday the 1st, we'll tackle a tougher mountain. Mt. Hamilton is an 8 mile trek, described as "difficult" in my hiking book. Greg and I climbed it a few weeks ago in our training for Three Fingered Jack. It's a pretty tough hike--but there are amazing views from the top. I don't recommend this for beginners. We'll do a mellower hike in December :)

Let's meet at ALC at 8:30. If you live in Gresham, let me know a good meeting place and we'll hook up at 9:00. As usual, bring a lunch, water, walking stick or poles (it is steep), camera, dog, rain gear . . .

See you on the trail!
