52 Hike Challenge ~ Hike 36: Horse Rock Ridge (again)

Horse Rock Ridge June @ Mt. Hope Chronicles

On June 25th I returned to Horse Rock Ridge for the third time this year. The first was cool and cloudy, but we still had a view. The second hike, Holly and I were completely in the clouds (we could hardly see in front of us as we were hiking). This third hike was hot and sunny! Lola, Holly, Ivy, Monet, Bella, Sophia, Christina, Sarah, Hudson, Houston and I hiked the 4 miles and 1,000+ foot elevation gain.

The grass was brown, but the wildflowers were beautiful. We had views of Mt. Jefferson and the Three Sisters at the end of the hike.

Again, we had the trail completely to ourselves.

We finished off our hot afternoon with a swim at McKercher Park on the way home.
