Nice hike to wear off the Thanksgiving meal in McDonald Forest with Dwayne Janz (down visiting family). Dwayne was a student/runner in the late '70's when I taught/coached at Dallas HS --- and we've been hiking together ever since. I think he's 55 now (wow, that's scary). We trekked 15.5 miles with 4000' elev gain in about 4 1/2 hours, stopping for views on Dimple Hill and McCulloch Peaks. Crisp, clear, refreshing 23 degrees at the start. Finished up the day at Best Little Roadhouse with a great meal and helping support the Deschutes Brewery (he wanted a taste of Oregon). Included a couple of old pics from '78 and '03 (facing the Matterhorn). Video clip at the end.
