I got out for a hike on Mt. Hood to Yocum Ridge. I have not done this trail for many years so it seemed like it was time for me to revisit it. The weather forecast was not promising so I was figuring on just a walk in the woods in Gortex. Starting out at the trail-head it seemed like it was going to be a gray day. As I climbed higher I managed to break out of low layer of clouds and found a beautiful day at the 5000 foot and above level. I followed the trail as far as could before it became a rock scramble.
