My son and I headed out to the Frog Lake TH to hike the PCT going south. The Parking lot was full around the perimeter with cars starting to park in the center of the lot.
We quickly crossed Hwy 26 at the PCT. As we hiked it became apparent that nobody was on the trail in this section, which was amazing on such a beautiful day. The mosquitoes were few and far between, and the wind helped keep it that way! This section of the PCT has some outstanding views of Mt. Hood, and it didn’t disappoint.
This section of the PCT probably isn’t considered very popular, which worked to our advantage since we saw NOBODY the entire day. 🙂 An amazing day with a wilderness like experience!
