Canyon Creek Meadows
September 4, 2010
Thank goodness for sunshine! We had an exceptionally beautiful day
starting at Jack Lake all the way up to the rocky rim facing Three
Fingered Jack. It was windy as usual on the rim and unfortunately the
cirque lake was grey-brown, not the glistening turquoise seen on a
previous trip. Because of the wind, we didn’t go as far as the viewpoint
saddle. Keiko directed us to a sunny lunch spot up on a hillside
overlooking the trail and lupine fields. On the way home some of us
stopped at Camp Sherman’s general store. It was packed with Labor Day
visitors enjoying the Metolius River which flows just across the street.
Members: Daphne James, Diane Pergamit, Nancy Whitfield, Keiko Bryan,
Pat Esch, and Elle Weaver (leader) enjoyed meeting nonmembers: Brian
Popowsky and Laura and Michael Murphy.
