Sunday, a few of us went out to Olallie ridge, south of McKenzie Bridge. We had been there before, but took the time to explore some new spots, including The Potholes, and Horsepasture Mtn. We had warm, summer weather, but it was clear that the seasons were changing. In a month, this area may be under snow.

Some climbing, hike a bike, and finally just plain hiking got us to the top of Horsepasture Mountain, with some incredible views of the 3 Sisters, just to our west.
North and Middle Sister
From Horsepasture, we still had a short, but steep gravel road climb, and then we ended our day with 3.5 miles of perfect singletrack back to the car. No pictures, but suffice it to say, it was a great ending.
