7 miles of hiking • 1000' elevation gain •

Wonderful day on an abandoned trail up to Basin Lakes in Indian Heaven, huckleberries and lots of hidden ponds. Perfect until we sat down for lunch and Karl noticed a huge smoke plume not so very far from us. it was the East Crater Fire starting. We quickly abandoned plans, let some campers in the area know and got out. Glad I saw those lakes mere hours before they likely burned. Still a great day with Two TFF's


nuizontann and Karl heart this trip.

It was certainly a day I won't forget anytime soon! Glad to have spent it with friends who "get it."
