Golden Lake, Inlet Stream, & Tarns
This is a gallery of images from a 3 day backpack on August 17-19th into Golden Lake in the Three Sisters Wilderness, northeast of Broken Top. We camped for two nights at Golden Lake and explored it and its stream up to the foot of Broken Top.
The wildflowers were extremely late this year – the flowers in Park Meadows (well below the lake) had peaked about 3 weeks earlier, the flowers along the stream between those meadows and Golden Lake were peaking during our hike, and Golden Lake's flowers had yet to see their peak. And, in general, it appeared to be a pretty poor year for flowers.
