Lillian Falls & Waldo Lake

September 11, 2010

September is a wonderful time for hiking to Lillian Falls and Waldo Lake. The mosquitoes are gone and the late-summer sunlight filters through the forest with a warm, yellow glow, highlighting the orange and red vine maple. It was just such a perfect day as nine hikers made their way to the falls, then on up to Klovdahl Bay on Waldo Lake. The two stream crossings en route provided variety to the steady uphill climb. Lunch at the edge of the lake was ideal with perfect temperatures, blue sky and beautiful vistas to the east. On the return trip, we spent some time at Lillian Falls, scrambling up for the best views. The falls cascade down multiple levels, through sun and shadow on mosses and grasses of infinite green hues, making this one of the most picturesque falls in the Cascades. The congenial group included members Joanne Ledet, Sachiko Iwasaki, Sharon and Jim Duncan, and nonmembers Denise Hinz (doing her second Obsidian hike), Sandy Feren, Art Kearney, and visitors from New York (and members of the Adirondack Hiking Club), Orrie and Gudren Frutkin.
