Matthieu Lakes

Sunday, October 2, 2011
Leader: Jim Duncan
Hike: 6 miles, 800 ft (Moderate)

Nine Obsidians took a chance that the rain in Eugene wouldn’t necessarily mean rain in the mountains and we went ahead with our scheduled hike to Matthieu Lakes. And, we were rewarded with an almost perfect day for hiking – partly sunny skies, cool temperatures, and good views of the mountains. The upper loop had views of Belknap Crater, Mt. Washington and Three Fingered Jack over our right shoulder, with clouds covering most of Mt. Jefferson. We stopped for a leisurely lunch at South Matthieu Lake facing North and Middle Sister, then continued the loop trail down to North Matthieu Lake on our way back to the trailhead. Our congenial group all agreed that it was a good day to be out in the mountains.
