Tipsoo Peak

August 27, 2010

This hike was a prelude to the Mt. Bailey hike the following day. It would have been nice if the great weather we had for Tipsoo, would have lasted one more day — oh well. The four of us headed out of our meeting point at Pleasant Hill at 7 a.m. and were headed up the Tipsoo trail by 9:45. An hour and a half later we were on top enjoying the nice weather, a nice lunch, the world’s best view of Mt Thielsen and watching a couple of marmots cavort. Recent elk tracks on the trail and mule deer standing nearby were also a part of this wildlife extravaganza hike.

While not a part of the official trip itinerary, after the main event we went up Cinnamon Butte to visit the lookout there and its fire watcher. We had a great introduction to fire watching and yet another great view of the area. Then it was on to Crater Lake for a hike up to the Watchtower and visit one more lookout, visit with one more fire watcher and enjoy an incredible view of Crater Lake.

Hikers were Brad Bennett, Rob Castleberry, Janet Jacobsen and John Jacobsen, leader.
