Tired of the ongoing Smokey skies, the hunt was on to find smoke free air close to home. Having just seen a post from our friends up at Mt. Bachelor saying the smoke had cleared our mission was on. Starting out in front of the gate to Sunrise lodge the skies were still smoked fill but we started our hike to the summit hopeful. As we got up the Sunrise chairlift we saw the hiking trail that was just to our right in the trees. As we made our way up the two hour hike to the summit you could feel the air getting easier to breathe as the sky turned to blue. Nearing the summit we started taking our first breaths of oh so clean air. After an hour of hanging out and enjoying the views it was time to make the trek home and back to the smoke.
