Thank you. Yeah, it was a great first time trip. We had originally planned on hiking Siouxan Creek near Mt Adams, but it was closed for road repairs due to a slide. So, our decision to switch to Windy Ridge was spur of the moment and we were not able to do the usual back ground research. But, it all went well enough for me to be hooked. Now, I want to do a solo hike around Timothy Lake near Mt Hood before it closes for winter. I plan on taking a full pack to the walk in campground that is half way around the lake. It will be fun!
