We did our first hike of the trip yesterday, making an attempt to go up Byers Peak. As you can see in the photo, there's still quite a bit of snow on the ground. I'm amused by the sign which says, "Welcome to Wilderness" buried in the snow. We ended up going about four miles, then turning around because of the snow and threat of rain. Not too bad for the first day, an eight mile hike to get acclimated. Today we're going to try to reach Cascade Falls on the Crater Lake trail.
