We drove up road 35 which is now called Civil Road, to the trailhead for Iron Mountain, a shorter hike instead of starting at Tompstone Pass. Next time we will start from Tombstone so we get to see even more flowers! Needless to say, I think it took us five times longer to hike it since we stopped so many times to admire and identify the flowers. I highly recommend this hike, it is one of the best wildflower trails in Oregon!
