Canyon Creek Meadows

On a cold, crisp autumn morning I drove to Jack Lake a few miles east of Three Fingered Jack. The mountain’s reflection in the lake was crystal clear.

The hike into the meadows of Canyon Creek Basin underneath the glacial moraine of the old volcano was spectacular. The 7,841-foot jagged summit was highlighted by streaks of red volcanic seams.

Upon returning to the lower meadows, I took a loop back to the trailhead.

What a nice place to enjoy a wilderness setting.
