Mount McLoughlin - Mt. McLoughlin Trail, June 2010
Oregon’s forgotten volcano they call it, and rightfully so I might add! For a ~9500ft mountain I was expecting something a bit more alpine, but with vegetation to within a few hundred feet of the summit I found the ascent to be total bore. Wet, unconsolidated and at times knee deep snow also made for much more tedious going than seemed worth the effort. You know, I figured I was in the area so what the heck…might as well check it out. At least I had the good sense to leave the splitboard back in the car this time.
