Tag Archives: muddy meadows

The girls and I took a trail that started at the Mount Adams Wilderness boundary and went up to the Pacific Crest Trail. The trail was named Muddy Meadows and muddy, it was not. The meadows were dry. Few flowers were blooming – mostly asters. When the trail went into the forest, it was thick with dust and black flies and mosquitoes. According to the map it should have been 1.3 or 1.5 miles to the PCT. According to my step counter, it was more like 3 miles up there. It did appear to have been re-located in places but I could not imagine they had doubled the distance. We got some exercise and there was water in two different spots along the trail for the dogs. And I took water for them so they were alright but I can’t say that it was my favorite hike ever. Or even close. Still, I like those views of Mount Adams.
