Carl Lake is a deep, clear lake on the east side of the Mount Jefferson Wilderness.
The lake is set in a glacial basin with high rocky cliffs on the west side.
We were favored with warm, sunny weather on the day of our visit.
The last of the season’s huckleberry crop was still abundant on the shore of the lake.
We hiked to the top of a high ridge to the north to get a view before returning.
The water was too cold to go swimming.
Those of us enjoying the outing were Dan Bates, Emmy Dale, Bonnie Manheim, Susan Stewart
and leader Dave Predeek.
