A day trip to Pansy lake – A nice trail, however it can get rather crowded on nice days. Interesting rock formation on the way to the trailhead, too. I don’t think there are too many fish in Pansy Lake, though (too shallow).

Description of Hike:
This was a weekend backpack trip to Duffy Lake in the Mt Jefferson wilderness area. The trail continues on to Mowich lake, which is a larger lake, but Duffy seems to have better camping areas around it. There were quite a few people at this lake (including horses), but when camping there, you wouldn’t know it. It was a nice place to camp. Didn’t have too much luck with fishing, though! It was one of our first backpacking trips, and we had a great deal of fun, even though we had a real soaker of a rain storm (you can see by the pictures).
