PNW hiking group did the Black Crater hike leaving early to avoid the heat. Though the forest around the trail burned in 2017 the hike was still beautiful with wildflowers in full bloom. Of course the view from the top is spectacular. It is a long pull of 3 1/2 miles uphill but with this group of wonderful women, it was a blast. I will never tire of getting to the very top of the mountain.
