Cruising through my previous uploads and tagging them, I ran across this shot of us. I remember this hike, this day. it pretty much captured the mood. You can’t see Lucy, but she was there.
We cruised out w/ our friends a couple of Saturdays ago into the Three Sisters Wilderness. It was a pretty chill hike so the kids enjoyed it. As we were hiking we noticed how diverse that particular area was – open meadows, groves, lava flows, lakes, and at points switchbacks that cut through dense wooded areas.
Towards the 1st part of the trail we could have hooked up w/ part of the Pacific Crest Trail, it was cool to see some serious backpackers up the trail – no doubt in for the long haul.
We made it as far as North Matthieu Lake where we broke out some snacks and relaxed for a while – other hikers passed by some with kids, other w/ their pets – a good day for a hike for sure.
We started from Lava Camp Trailhead and the trail we popped on happened to open up that weekend – so we lucked out.
