Carl Lake/South Cinder Peak

September 26, 2010

Three hearty hikers decided to defy the weather report of slight chance of morning showers and proceeded to the trailhead for Carl Lake. A variety of numerous young conifers were peaking up through thick growths of manzanita and huckleberry shrubs throughout the 2003 burn area during the first two miles of the hike. It was reassuring to see the damaged landscape renewing itself with such strength and bounty. The morning was lovely, with partly sunny skies and beautiful fall colors already turning much of the huckleberry shades of flaming red, fiery orange and brilliant yellow. Above Carl Lake the weather began to come in earnestly. The 450 foot ascent up South Cinder Peak was windy with the sky getting darker by the minute. However, we all made it to the top and enjoyed the view with only a five minute sprinkle to slow us down as we began our descent.

Hikers were Becky Lipton (leader), and nonmembers: Kathy Brenner and Charles Fisher.
