Went on a hike up Dog Mountain. Supposedly it’s 6 miles round trip, but according to sign posts, it ended up being more like 7.5 miles. Boy was I sore the next day. But, the hike was nice, with lots of wildflowers up top. The last stretch of the hike had great views, but was extremely windy. Next time, I’m packing a warm hat and a wind breaker. But, if you’re looking for a good hike end of June or early July, this would be one!

Heading back through the forest route
The alternate path was very over grown.
I was a fan of the trail. Very soft and easy on the feet, most parts didn’t have rocks or tree roots (I’m notorious for falling/tripping)
Just as we were heading back down, the sun came out for this parting shot of the gorge.
