Canyon Creek Meadows
August 22, 2004
Under rainy skies we piled into one car and headed to the Jack Lake Road.
We arrived at about 10:30 a.m. to a nearly vacant parking lot but still cloudy
The trail had puddles of standing water and waved in and out of burned areas
of last year’s forest fires.
In some areas the burned trees blackened bark was peeling to reveal vivid
red, yellow and orange cores.
A strong contrast to the lush, meadow forest.
After lunching just above the meadow which was past the height of the flower
blooms, we made a quick departure under a rather constant rain.
No view of Three Fingered Jack.
We removed the wet outlayers, headed for a cup of hot sweet drink and
arrived back at SEHS at about 4:00 p.m.
The hearty group consisted of:
Laurie Funkhouser, leader.
