July 2000, Three Sisters 50 Mile hike

Three Sisters hike

On the 21st to 27th of July our troop went on a 65 mile hike in the Three Sisters Wilderness area. At different times, we had different scouts along: Trevor d (5 days), Ty F (7 days), Nick H (4 days), Sean M (7 days), Amphil R (4 days), and Thomas R (1 day resupply and South Sister climb).

The adults were John D (7 days), Kevin H (1 day resupply and South Sister climb), and Dave R (7 days).

An interactive map of the area can be found at terraserver.

There is a separate page for each day of our trek. Just click on the picture to see a little of what we saw on that day. Unfortunately, cameras cannot really capture what we saw out there.

You can see an overview of all of the pictures. There are lots of them.

Some of the photos are on the web pages listed below, but not all of them as there are too many. You can see all of them by looking at the overview (above), or when you click on a photo, you can use the arrows at the bottom to see other photos taken at about the same time.
