It's been unbearibly hot lately so we decided to go to a part of the state that is even hotter. Did I mention it was hot? Well, it was in case you didn't know. The first day of our trip we decided to hike up to a place called 4 in 1 cone.
The trail started out in the woods and it was beary comfortable (of course it was 7:15am).
There was lots of lava rock along the trail.
I spy a mountain in the distance.
Sequoia is raring to go but I prefer to rest and enjoy the view.
I am beary curious about this rock.
Ahh, made it to the top. The views are amazing. I believe this is North Sister and Middle Sister.
Ohh, overhere is Mt Washington and possibly Three Finger Jack. This looked like a spot for a great early lunch. ter and Middle Sister.
After relaxing at the campground we decided to head out for some ice cream and a bag of ice (did I mention it was hot?).
The flowers were beautiful and sadly I didn't see any beezzzzzz (sorry Jerry and Ben). There were lots of friendly bears at this place as well.
I don't know if I should be excited about a honey flavored syrup or sad that they are kind of trying to pass this off as honey. Although I must admit I like the name since It's the same as my bearista bear friend Little Bear
The next day we headed out again and it was not as hot today. We wanted to explore a trail along the McKenzie River that led us to a place called Tamolich Pool. Along the way I saw some more lava rocks.
The river is far below. I hope my roommates don't try and float me down this river in a homemade boat a-la Sandy's experience.
Sequoia was excited to be at the blue pool as well, one might say so excited he could not stand still.
After the blue pool we headed back home. Stopped for lunch PB&J and got back in time to air out the house.
