Todd Lake Afternoon

No trip to the central Oregon Cascades in high summer would be complete without a side trip to Todd Lake, to hike the circumfrence and commune with the wildflowers. The scenery is amazing, the colors are breathtaking, but boots might still be adviseable. Even in late summer the wildflower meadows on the north side of the lake are very wet that it is almost impossible to get all the way around without splashing! We love it though, and do it every year. Here's a view from last year's August hike.
