Bat and the Silcox Hut

Bat runner totally copied from here.  Sara is very gracious about me using her fabulous bat design!  It finishes at 17″ x 24″.

Over the weekend, Kevin and I backpacked the Hidden Lake Trail in the Mt. Hood Wilderness.  We set up our tent at 6,200′.   Sunday morning we stayed “off trail” up to 7,000′ and crossed over several snow fields to the Silcox Hut, then down to Timberline Lodge and back to our car.  Totals come to 14 miles and 4,200′ in elevation gain.017-Tent

The arrows show the approximate locations where we crossed two of the snow fields.

A quick lay down in the snow.  It is pretty wet this time of year.

    I’m sure this bat is much larger than the one that followed you home…
