A beautiful late fall day that was more like summer,
clear and warm.
We left Devils Lake trailhead at 9 a.m., most of us getting
to the top in early afternoon.
This is truly one of the most spectacular hikes in the NW
with close-up views of South Sister Peak and Broken Top
on the way up, then Middle and North Sisters from the top,
as well as Jefferson, Hood, Adams, and occasionally Rainier
far to the north, and of course Shasta to the south.
Climbers were: non-Obsidians
