Re: [hiking-309] New Meetup: Chambers Lakes Backpack

The bugs were not as bad on the north side of Broken Top as they were the weekend before on a hike I did to Broken Top from Todd Lake. They were not too thick at Camp Lake but a little troublesome through the woods leading to the lake. As far as snow, I did cross a few short patches within a 1/2 mile of Camp Lake. There was quite a bit of snow around the lake itself. The water was very comfortable though I was only able to enter it knee deep. I did however take a swim approximately a mile down the trail in a small and pristine lake on the way back. That water was warm and the lake was crystal clear. The bottom of the lake was firm black sand and quite comfortable to walk on. Might recommend a day trip there for some good swimming. Keep me informed as to weather you want to camp Friday night.
 
Bye for now.

Hi Gary,
Welcome to the group. How were the bugs last weekend? Did you have to
cross any snow?  I would like to camp on Friday also. I was going to
wait and see how many people would be able to do this. Molly
