July 23rd 2009 we headed out with Jane, Tim & Maddy to Strawberry Mountain Wilderness for a few days. There we met up with Eric, Nancy & Scotty. Scotty's son Jason & grand kids Trent & Piper also joined us. Some hung out at Strawberry Lake for a couple of days while the others got two mountain hikes / scrambles in, first Slide Mountain then the following day Strawberry mountain. On the way home we stopped in Mitchell to Henry the Bear, the Painted Hills then took the 36 mile gravel back road to Ashwood before heading home via Maupin.

Eric & I had a free Friday afternoon so we decided to check out the Rock of Ages Trail. We made a loop of it by coming back on the Horsetail Creek (#425) & Oneonta(#424) trails. The Rock of ages trail is one of the toughest trails you will find in the gorge it climbs over 3000' in less than 3 miles. The whole trip was about 11 miles with side trips.

Sunday, Chiyoko & I headed up McNeil Ridge. Avalanche Lilies & Bear Grass were the best I've ever seen on this trail. We found a fair bit of snow on the timberline trail 2-3' deep in places but once we made it over to the ridge we were snow free. Fantastic weather & great views all day long :^)...
