Iron Mountain, Carpenter Mountain with Bucky & Billy 7.20.13

A friend of mine recently got a couple of Nubian goats (Bucky & Billy) he intends on taking on hiking trips, possibly lightening his own pack. When I called him up and told him we were going on a little trip to a couple of old lookout sites, he jumped at the chance to get them some trail time. Mysel...

It also works well for vertical orientation. Here is a tree lookout at Black Mountain from a recent trip to the Ochoco's. The lighting was really crummy that morning, so I just turned it B/W when I uploaded it to Flickr.

Trail #541 Fish Creek Mountain & High Lake July 13, 2013

This trail (trail # 541) is mostly shaded by forest the entire way, which makes it a nice choice for a warm day. The tr...
