PCT - Hyatt Lake to Greensprings Summit 5-29-17

Photos by Bob, Gladys and Neal

A beautiful Memorial day brought out 20 hikers to do the Hyatt lake to Greensprings Summit trail. After a bit of organizational effort we left a shuttle at Greensprings Summit and proceeded to the Hyatt Campground parking where there was both a toilet and lots of room for the cars. 

The trail was in good shape to Little Hyatt Lake where we stopped for the usual bridge photo. Later on there was some deadfall, but nothing serious. Last year we went the wrong way and took a shorter route but this year there was an excellent sign at the key fork that explained the options. The fork is a long way from Little Hyatt. The two trails form a loop around the mountain peak and the right side takes you much further and up to where there are beautiful views. 

I had remembered an open field and a log to sit on for lunch but was amazed to find the log would comfortably accommodate 20 hikers. The views over to Mount Ashland were spectacular and we could see down to Mount Eddy and Pilot Rock. After a long lunch and excellent chocolate, kindly provided by Irene Simms (thank you Irene and welcome back) we headed off for Greensprings Summit, still a fair walk away. 

We arrived at the Summit and the drivers retrieved the cars, then off for most of us to Caldera Brewery. The brewery was swamped and hadn't arranged for enough servers but we bought our beers at the bar and found a table that accommodated us with a few extra chairs.  

Thank you to Mike Sanson and Mike LaTourneau for playing sweep to a large group of hikers. Thank you to Traci for finding me an Ashland Amber, my usual fuel.
