McNeil Point Hike

I got out for a hike up to McNeil Point on Mt. Hood with my friend Leslie today. I have done this route dozens of time in all kinds of condition so no new surprise for me. Leslie had not done it before so she was more impress by the beauty of the mountain and this trail. We did the climbers trail going up so it gave a chance to do a little scrambling. First time I had to yell “ROCK” and really mean it as a bowling ball size rock went flying pass us. We had good weather for the hike and lots of flowers in bloom. We had cloud rainbows (iridescent cloud, fire rainbow) on the way down – rare phenomenon but fun to see and hard to photograph.
