It has been raining a lot here. We finally had a chance for us to get together and do a Sunday hike. We headed to the East side of the Cascades to see if we could find some sun. We lucked out and caught a gap between fronts at the Dallas Mt. Ranch. Right now it still has its dried out vegetation from last summer heat but still a stark beauty to it. We did a loop on the lower part of the park and then head off to the Dallas for food and drink. We tried a new place called the watch tower and it was excellent.
