52 Hike Challenge ~ Hike 35: Iron Mountain

Iron Mountain @ Mt. Hope Chronicles

On June 18th, we made our yearly excursion to the top of Iron Mountain [pics from last year]. We tried to schedule it carefully. We wanted a clear, warm day. This particular Monday was supposed to be hot and sunny, so we started early. In the cold and rain. So much for planning. The kids and I were joined by Char and her kids, Sarah and her kids, and Holly with Ivy and Ilex.

The Iron Mountain trail is only 3 miles, but it’s a strenuous 1,300 foot elevation gain. Straight up. Straight down. That tiny ribbon in the upper left of the above picture is the road where we started. 

Even though our weather started out so cool and drizzly, we still had a great view from the summit. The Three Sisters are below.
