July 26, 2005: Burnt Lake (Mt. Hood National Forest, Oregon)

July 26, 2005: This hike climbs gradually through an evergreen forest to Burnt Lake, then steeply up a hillside to the top of East Zigzag Mountain. Honestly, with the exception of the last mile to the top, it was a little bit boring; if you're going to drive all the way to Mt. Hood to hike 9.5 miles, I'd recommend hiking on Mt. Hood. Plus, the flies were unbelievably annoying.
