Matthieu Lakes

August 1, 2004

As this was my first hike I led I want to thank the great group of hikers for making my experience so enjoyable. The weather was sunny and warm and half our group decided at lunch to take a swim at S. Matthieu and decided to take another swim at N. Matthieu.

Fortunately we had few mosquitoes, clear blue skies with great views of the Sisters, Three Fingered Jack, to name a few. We did encounter smog when we were at S. Matthieu Lake looking toward Central Oregon due to the Warm Springs fires. On our hike we also saw trees with beetle invasion. Two forest rangers who were maintaining the trails said that this is common and their policy is not to spray.

I want to thank my great group of hikers— Maggie Gontrum, Janet Hall, Diane Jeffcott, Daphret Jones, Joanne Ledet, Marshall Kandell, Paul Kandell, Susan Stewart, Mary Wade, Lou Ward. —Kathy Riddle.
