Ascent Trip Report

An oldie but a goodie - Alander Mountain. Done it many times. This time went with my wife and our dog. The trail was a bit muddy in spots.

The open summit was hot on this fine spring day and the rocks appear to have burned our dog's paws. Took a stroll over to the southwest summit and tagged the Columbia County highpoint. On the way back, I went for a 'swim' with our dog at one of the brook crossings.
