North & South Matthieu Lakes

August 27, 1994

Eight people left SEHS parking lot at 8 a.m. August 27 for our hike into North and South Matthieu Lakes. We set off on a dusty PCNST under a clear blue sky at about 10:30, enjoying good views of Mt. Washington, Three-Fingered Jack, Mt. Jefferson and Mt. Hood along the way. A pine marten was seen shortly after leaving the trailhead by Dick Hildreth. After reaching South Matthieu Lake six of us climbed a nearby cinder cone, which gives a magnificent view. We then hiked down to North Matthieu Lake. Some waded around in the shallows looking at egg cases near the shore. Swimmers and sun bathers enjoyed a carefree, no-mosquito day in the High Cascades, Three Sisters Wilderness. We were a congenial group of three non-members (Ron Crawford, Jim Fritz and Melany Clasen) and Obsidians Dick Bentsen, Helen Liguori, Dick Hildreth, Mary Millman and trip leader Mary Bentsen.
