Foggy Dog Mountain

With kitesurfing season already in full force - my hiking/photographing time is now in decline. So when I saw that the forecast for last weekend was looking pretty weak (wind- wise) I decided it will be a good time for a hike. The destination was Dog Mountain since the wildflowers are in full bloom right now. The hike felt much easier compared to last time I went there two years ago - so either the weather was better suited for hiking (since it wasn't as hot as last time) or I'm in better shape (possibly both) :)
Anyway one surprise once we got over the tree line was heavy fog and very strong wind which we didn't really prepare for so we all got quite cold in the end and missed the view of the Gorge but still the fast moving clouds at our feet looked very cool.
