lyon creek trail
my first hike to timberline!
sarah says it was my "first alpine experience"
(i'm sorry Jon missed it but there will be more...hope most of you got to make it to his opening tonight!)
of all the hikes so far, this one felt the most like what i imagined a west coast hike to be
lush greenery and big pines, fallen leaves to start...ankle high snow half way up until about mid-calf at summit--and cold at the top!
2.5 hrs up, 45mins down
of course i forgot my camera (duh)...here are some random phone pics (sorry if the quality isn't exceptional)
