Lori, Jeanette and I got out for a short hike of Barlow Butte. This was a shake down hike to get ready for winter hiking and snowshoeing. We were all recovering from injuries so a slow short hike was just right (4 miles, 1500 gain). Cold freezing temps but nice clear skies and very little wind. For Lori this was the first time to see this trail without snow on it.
