It is National Trails Day, the second day of our Sun Mountain Lodge getaway, and I am leading a mountaineers loop hike on the trails around the lodge. This loop includes Patterson Mountain, hike 105 in “Day Hiking North Cascades” by Craig Romano, or visit the WTA site’s description of Patterson Mountain. Participants include Nicole Hansen (leader), Jennifer Lekisch, Bobbie Laue, Cyndy Becklund, and Chuck Buechner. Weather was ideal, excellent 360 views from the summit of Patterson Mountain, which was also in full desert bloom along the way.
