Canyon Creek Meadows
August 14, 2005
Reaching the trailhead was half the trip due to the long drive and
slightly bumpy ending.
However the clean air, clear skies, and slight coolness due to the gentle
breezes was worth it.
The crew of six hikers cheerfully reached the meadows to find the marsh
Then we headed up to the moraine to peer down on the slightly muddy lake
at the base of Three Fingered Jack With encouragement from Julie, some
of the hikers took on the additional 1.5 mile hike/climb for the awesome
view of the Three Sisters, Husband,, Mt. Bachelor and Mt. Washington.
After taking the time to enjoy the view, the crew headed down to complete
the loop and return to the cars.
The section of the trail that winds through the burned area has begun to
regenerate; noticeably by the presence of fireweed.
The cheerful crew consisted of:
Laurie Funkhouser (leader),
Jean Murphy (non-member),
