Recent trip to Gifford Pinchot forest with friends

This was a day long trip and getting home late in the evening. We were guided to the spots where these images were shot by my former boss who had been going to this area for many years. The roads are really washboard in nature but any reasonable vehicle can make this trip. It is worth the trip and we did not see any other people for most of the day, but do enter the area with a full tank of gas.


One of the first lakes we visited.


This is the entrance to Muddy Meadows with a short walk giving you a fantastic view of Mt Adams

Mt Adams mirrored in the lake!

This is the drainage for the lake

This is the other side of the drainage and I am told loaded with Crawdads.

A nice late setting on another lake!

My favorite of the day Mt Adams with lenticular clouds covering her peak!
