52 Hike Challenge ~ Hike 5: Lewisburg Saddle

Lewisburg Saddle 1 @ Mt. Hope Chronicles

It was rainy and cold all week. January in Oregon is pretty dreary. That’s why I’ve been so thankful for this challenge. There is no way I would be going on these hikes without the accountability!

Holly and I planned to meet up on Saturday, rain or shine, and our friend Christina joined us. Christina suggested starting at the Lewisburg Saddle Trailhead. We were following her lead, so I’m not sure which trails we followed, nor how far we hiked. It was a perfect day, though. Not too cold and no rain or wind. The moody fog added to the atmosphere, and the company was great.

The terrain was fairly easy. More uphill that we’ve done the past few hikes, but comfortable.

50 degrees

Light fog, no rain

Hiking buddies: Christina, Holly, Ivy, Levi, Leif, and Lola

I felt fantastic after this hike. If only the kids hadn’t disobeyed and the result hadn’t been the keys being locked in the car when we were dropping Luke off at a friend’s house before the hike. Frustrating and stressful, since we needed to meet up at a specific time. Argh!!

Lots of mud. Because Oregon. And January.
