Matthieu Lakes Hike Photos
July 30, 2011
Horse Lake was planned for this day, but there was just too much snow and swollen creeks (did I mention mosquitoes?) to do it. So, we came to Matthieu Lakes. Surprise, there was still snow here, too. Blessedly, not many mosquitoes. So up we hiked along the Pacific Crest Trail and had our lunch on the shore of South Matthieu Lake with the vista of North Sister in our picture window. The trek down was lower and in the trees, so we encountered quite a bit more snow along the way. Maybe it won't all melt until November? A day of great views, followed by a well deserved "respite" at Bend Brewing Co. for some of us.
