A hike up Dog Mountain on Sunday afternoon, a steep climb, but so well known that you have plenty of company, and so many times hiked by me that it seems almost easy because of its predictability.  It was very cool, and windy.  I didn’t see too many wildflowers on the way up, and the huge meadow on top had only a few.   Usually by mid-May the top is covered with lupine and arrowleaf balsamroot.  But on the way back down, at a small meadow that overlooks the Columbia River, I got my reward, and the big heavy camera pack was suddenly no longer a wasted effort to carry.  The wind did play me for a fool though, trying to get crisp clear images of the flowers.  I went on to Rowena plateau, on the Oregon side east of Hood River, for sunset.  I may post a couple of those tomorrow morning.
