Evening on Broken Top

Over the long weekend we went up to camp at Green Lakes in the South Sister Wilderness area and climbed Broken Top after our 4 mile hike in for a sunset view. It is quite beautiful up there, pictures dont really do it justice! This is a view from a high ridge on Broken Top and the two mountains pictured are Middle and North Sister.

 

The next morning we hiked to the top of South Sister, which is almost 4000 ft higher in elevation than our camp at Green Lakes. It was quite a hard hike and there was a great view of the large fire burning near Mt. Washington. In all, we covered about 18 miles and 6000 ft in elevation gain in our 2 night adventure!
