Three Pyramids (Middle)

July 24, 2005

It was a perfect day for our hike up the Middle Pyramid. The flowers on the ridge were spectacular, especially the Washington Lilly. The view from the former lookout tower top stretched from Mt. Adams to Broken Top and the Three Sisters. For many, the close up view of Mt. Jefferson was the dramatic payoff. The two miles up with an 1800 ft. elevation gain was filled with varied terrain of forest, creek, ripe salmonberries, meadows, cliffs, rock gardens, and views. The trail is in excellent condition with signs of recent maintenance. It is a particularly satisfying hike because of the length, the terrain, and the views. As always, one wonders what it would be like to hike up the South or North Pyramid. One also wonders why a stretch Hummer limo was stopped at the Snowpark on Road 2067. Thanks to Becky Hansen and Rod Wood for driving. John Latlyne visiting form Texas followed the two cars on his motorcycle. Hikers were Jennifer Baer, LaRee Beckley, Sheryl Brown, Michael Graney, Steve Gunn, Jane Hackett (leader), Becky Hansen, Janet Jacobsen, Daphne James, John Latlyne, Barbara Revere and Rod Wood.
