Crystal Lake Sept 2018

Betsy and I hiked up to Crystal Lake on Mt Adams in late September for a weekend of spectacular Fall color. Unfortunately my camera failed and so all of these photos were taken by Betsy.

A couple of off mushrooms along the lower trail. Many of them appear to have been partly eaten, by birds we guessed.

Some of the great color along the trail

Mt Adams and The Pinnacle from Riley Meadows

Riley Creek still is very silty

After about 6 miles and 2600 feet up, we arrive at Crystal Lake

Our camp

Some more color above the lake on a short hike

As sunset approaches

We went down in the valley of Riley Creek to the north, including a waterfall on the creek
