Yoran Lake

Saturday, June 29, 2013
Leader: Laurie Funkhouser
Hike: 12.1 miles, 1300 ft (Moderate)

Leaving Eugene promptly at 8:00 a.m., we were able to start hiking at about 10:00 a.m. under blue skies. The trail had a few downed trees, but nothing that could not be hiked over. However, the mosquitoes gave us an escort by all the lakes. We determined there is no truly effective repellent. With the full creeks we had a couple of challenging crossings, but no wet feet. We lunched at the breeziest spot with a view of dramatic Diamond Peak and Yoran Mountain. We successfully found Lils Lake and the PCT to head towards Pengra Pass. Stopped for a break at Midnight Lake to see it without snow. Guessed the temperature was in the 80s. Finished the hike with an ice cream treat at Shelter Cove. Great day!
