Canyon Creek Meadows

August 20, 2005

It was a beautiful day for an absolutely splendid hike. As a last minute leader for Anne McLucas, we nine found our way to the Jack Lake trailhead. It happened that none of us had hiked this trail before, so armed with Sullivan’s book and a map, we found our way. The trail was not crowded. Hikers are urges to travel clockwise, which helps to have the “wilderness experience.” Many wildflowers were still apparent even though the peak season had passed. The entire group made it to the glacial cirque lake, with wonderful views of Three Fingered Jack and the surrounding mountains. Three of the group scrambled further for an even more spectacular view. A short part of the trail took us through the burned area, which gave an eerie feeling. But already new growth and flowers had appeared. Wading and splashing in the water at Jack Lake made a refreshing end to the hike.

Participants were members Barbara Bruns (leader), John Lee, Becky Lipton, David McClurg, Eric McClurg, Nola Nelson, Marian West and non-members Les and Marian Brad.
