Day #2 of solo camping trip

This afternoon I hiked up a long, steep access road long ago abandoned. At some point this road was to include an entry way to a more rural trail, though at no point could I find the trailhead. The hiking along this old road was actually quite nice, moving through stands of old Doug Fir with wonderful wild flowers lining my path. After hiking for about an hour without site of the trail I decided to continue walking the road until I could find the end. It took about 5 miles of hiking before I came to the stopping point on the ridge of this mountain, and was amazing to find myself at a magnificent vista point, where I stopped to reflect on my hike and record in this wonderful environment.

The image accompanying today’s post was taken at the end vista point during my hike.
