Fuji Mountain-Upper Island Loop

Sunday, September 8, 2013
Leader: Lyndell Wilken
Hike: 16 miles, 2556 ft (Difficult)

Two Obsidians enjoyed clear skies and great weather conditions on the ascent of Fuji Mountain. Ripe huckleberries on the way to the top gave us a reason to stop, rest and enjoy. We were not alone on the trail as mountain bikes and a handful of hikers had already been to the top when we arrived at noon for lunch. With the recent rain we could see all the way to Mt. Hood. The temperature was warm, but pleasant for most of the trip. Waldo Lake was a beautiful blue against the blue sky. On the descent we decided not to continue to the Upper Island Loop, which would have been an additional 4 miles, so we settled for 12 miles on the day.
