Description of Hike:

This was a short hike to the Lost Lake Old Growth trail.

It was the weekend before my mother had hip surgery, and I thought it would be good for her to have some nice pictures in her head while she recovered. The trail is mostly a boardwalk through some magnificent old growth douglas fir and cedar trees.

It was a very nice day, however it was VERY cold and VERY windy. Luckily, we were spared most of the wind when going on the trail. We had lunch down by the lake, and it was really cold. The store was still open when we were there, but it was the last week until they closed up for the winter. Lost Lake is a beautiful lake, however it is a rather long drive to get there.
