23.2 miles to Timberline Lodge

Today’s hike was mostly in the trees with a few views of Mt Hood. Finally the trail was in the open on the flanks of Mt Hood and then I arrived at the wonderful Timberline Lodge.

I took a sink bath in the building below the lodge. I saw the French couple, Sugar Babel and Yet I Boy for the first time since Donner Lake.

We hung out at Timberline Lodge drinking beers and soaking in the view.

I tried to talk Grasshopper into staying another night. But she had to get back to California.
