Canyon Creek Meadows

October 7, 2006

Our group of four drove east for two hours to the Jack Lake trailhead. The parking lot was full of hunters’ rigs, but the sun was high, we never saw hunters or game and we never heard a shot. We set out at ten through nearly two miles of burn. The woods greened as we came to Canyon Creek, the meadow, and a great view of Three Fingered Jack. We cleared tree line and hiked a thousand feet up moraine till to the viewpoint and lunch. Sky and horizon were clear with good views of the PCT and strikingly bare Cascade peaks. We returned by the north leg of the loop towards Wasco Lake taking in the broad reach of the fire. I felt lonesome for my saws. The group included Obsidians Ann-Marie Askew, our driver, and Glen Svendsen, soon to be Obsidian Ed Durkee, and saddle weary leader Pat Adams. We were back well before dark.
