Dog Mountain

A winter on plastic machines at the gym just does not properly work all of the muscles that one needs to climb up a mountain.  It was a pretty tough hike but, while extremely tired, sore, and slow, Katie, Mike, and I felt pretty strong on our first hike of the season.

I've done the dog mountain hike. Zowie. I had to stop now and then to let the pain in my left arm subside.

Do it again in the spring when the mountain sunflowers bloom. That's when it's really worth hauling your camera up there. I'll share my photos with you sometime if you don't believe me.
PS If you dine at Marco's in Multnomah Village, they have some photos of those sunflowers on the mountain too.
