Matthieu Lakes

September 12, 2009

Having rescheduled this hike from the previous Saturday due to rain, we were rewarded with a beautiful, warm, late summer day. Ten of us left Eugene at 8:30 a.m. and arrived at the trailhead shortly before 11 a.m. After a three mile hike with views of North and Middle Sister, Mt. Washington and Mt. Jefferson, South Matthieu Lake appeared. We stopped there for a leisurely lunch and two members enjoyed a cold and refreshing swim. On the return trip, we stopped briefly at North Matthieu Lake and encountered three people fishing, whom we had seen earlier at South Matthieu Lake. Thanks to Howard and Mary for sharing driving duties.

Hikers were Jim Gillings, Howard Kapp, Mary Livingston, Helen Martz, Joe McCully, Richard McGuiness, Sue Meyers, Pauline Silano, Lamonte Smith and Paul Flashenberg, leader.
