<< Two Notes on the Lake Angeles Trail

07/12/09 - Obstruction Point 1 - The Trail

Obstruction Point Road has opened, and that means we can explore yet another part of the high country. The road itself is narrow, unpaved and has spectacular views. It leads to a trailhead that seems to be in the middle of nowhere and the middle everything. There are the brilliant glaciers of the Olympic Mountains, glimpses of the Cascades in the distance, and the great blue sky above.

There are glacial lakes down in this valley. They come in a variety of colors.

This is a photo of either neat looking rocks or a great view. We aren't sure.
