Beautiful early fall weather. A flannel shirt was enough to keep me warm.
I was looking forward to Park Meadows, and then the fun hike to Golden Lake.
From 6,600-foot Golden Lake the summits and glaciers of Broken Top and the Three Sisters seemed close enough to touch. I then scrambled up another 500 feet of elevation to two beautiful tarns hidden in the volcanic rock, except this time the two lakes were empty when I arrived.
I hiked back to Golden Lake, broke out a snack and marveled at the spectacular views.
Golden Lake in the Sisters Wilderness, like Warm Lake in Goat Rocks Wilderness, is why we hike and explore the wild places.
Truly stunning vistas, John, and your photos are incredible. Interesting to see all the stages of mountain scenes, with the lakes, dried-up lakes, creeks, fall ice, and evidence of a forest fire. Fun to see the broken top of Broken Top. Thanks for taking us with you through the Cascades…my goodness, such beauty here.
Thanks Jet. It’s a true jewel.
