Timberline Trail Pictures

Contained herein are nearly five hundred pictures that I shot while hiking around the Timberline Trail on 5-9 Aug 2005 with my friends Lara, Michelle, Dave, Eliza, Ana and Justin. The trek itself is nearly 40.3 miles with some 20,000 feet of total elevation gain; our trip started at 6,000 feet at Timberline Lodge, dropped to a low of 3,200 feet at Ramona Falls west of Mt. Hood and peaked (literally) atop Lamberson Spur east of Mt. Hood at 7,300 feet. This album contains only pictures going clockwise from Zigzag Canyon back to Timberline Lodge; for the first part, see photos from my first Timberline trip at about the same time last year. There was not much different on that segment from last year, except less snow.
