A-Hiking we will go....

Hi-Ho-the Derry-o..... oh wait... there was no Derry....O
But there was Lewis Ankeny McArthur, otherwise known as 'Tam'.

Today we hiked the Tam McArthur Rim trail.
Starting at Three Creeks Lakes, at 6500', you can see the ridge line you are about to ascend. It tops out at 7730' elevation. There were plenty of photo ops along the way so get ready to scroll. Here we go....

Daffy at the lake raring to go. The prow-like feature on the ridge in the distance is where we are headed...

..uh...wait a minute, we are going UP there??
Not even a half mile into the hike and we already gained a lot of altitude!

Broken Top in the distance, and still more up up up...

At one of the many outcroppings
The Three Sisters (Hope, Faith and Charity)

our lunch stop...

There is still snow up here!

Broken Top, South Sister, Middle Sister, North Sister

The 50 shades of lava rock...
Broken Top, the trail continues up...

On the way back down...Three Creeks Lake with Mt Washington and
3 Fingered Jack in the distance on the right. There is a wildfire in that area and the sky is quite murky.

It was a lovely hike with tons of great views. Daffy was a good little hiker, has good trail ettiquitte.
TSK greeted us at the door when we got home.....with a yawn...'oh, were you gone?'


  1. Beautiful scenery... And Daffy looks like she really enjoyed the hike! Thanks for sharing with us!

  2. GORGEOUS. I was thinking Daffy hadn't seen snow in some time but remembered you did have snow after she arrived. She's quite a girl loving all the activities. TSK adapts very well too in his own special way, lol. xo

  3. Gorgeous pictures! Thanks for posting, it makes us grin getting a peek at all your adventures.
