52 Hike Challenge ~ Hike 33: Marys Peak

Marys Peak @ Mt. Hope Chronicles

June 11th, hike 33.

From the parking lot near the summit, we took North Ridge Trail down, Tie Trail across, East Ridge Trail up, and then Summit Trail to the Peak for a total of about 3.5-4 miles. (A longer loop is shown at this link.) This was our second time hiking this trail, but our first this year.

I started the morning by whacking my head on the rear hatch of my Suburban and bleeding all over. That was the extent of the drama, however, and we (Char, Holly, and I with all our kids) had a gorgeous, misty, magical hike along the trail before the weather cleared and we had some sunshine and bright wildflowers at the top of the peak.

Did you not want to just break out into.... "the hills are alive, with the sound of music." Thank you so much for sharing your amazing gift of photography with us. I so enjoy getting a peak into the gorgeous vistas of the northwest.
