Patjens Lakes Loop
October 13, 2002
Conditions were perfect for hiking the Patjens Lakes (3) Loop
Sunday, October 13.
The six mile trail, south of Hoodoo, was in good shape with just a few
spots of crunchy ice—enough to suggest winter is just
around the corner.
Hikers were cooperative waiting at the unmarked junctions.
Within the last mile of the hike getting close to Big Lake
some large cat tracks were noticed also going down the trail.
Hikers were Barbara Chinn, Linn Crooks, Liz DeShelter, Laurie Funkhouser,
Donna Halker, Yuan Hopkins, Corinne Hunt, Marshall Kandell,
Patty MacAfee, Laura Neckels, Rich Stevenson, Janice Suratt,
and Mary Ellen West, leader.
