Classic summer hike to Mt. Jefferson summit via Castle Trail on Sunday! It was a sunny, mild day with a breezy summit where we enjoyed lunch. Decended via the Caps Ridge Trail. The "castles" & "caps" were challenging and very scenic. Enjoyed appetizers and a refreshing swim at Bear Pond after the hike.
