Matthieu Lakes

Wednesday, September 11, 2013
Leader: Sharon Duncan
Hike: 6 miles, 800 ft (Moderate)

It was a warm day in Eugene, but a beautiful day in the mountains. Our group of nine left Eugene and met Greg at the trailhead just past Dee Wright Observatory. We took the upper loop trail, stopping to look at several fly aminitas and other mushrooms along the way. At higher points along the trail, we looked back for great views of Belknap Crater, Mt. Washington, Three Fingered Jack, Mt. Jefferson, and in the distance, Mt. Hood. We enjoyed a leisurely lunch at South Matthieu Lake facing North and Middle Sister. The two Barbaras, Marlene, Mary, and Greg braved the cool water for a refreshing swim. After lunch we continued on the loop trail, stopping briefly at North Matthieu Lake, then continued on past the long ridge of lava, and back to the trailhead. The lakes and vistas were beautiful, the day was perfect, and everyone seemed to enjoy this outing.

Members: Sharon Duncan, Jim Duncan, Mary Livingston, Nancy Whitfield, Tommy Young, Barbara Aten, Yuan Hopkins, Marlene Drescher. Nonmembers: Barbara Dumesnil, Greg Vaughn.
