Took a day off to do an early season hike in the Mt Jefferson Wilderness. 
The trail to Pamelia Lake is an easy hike through some magnificent old-growth forest. Hiking through a wide morain, evidence of glaciation is everywhere. Moss covers everything. Trees are immense. 

Beyond the lake, we hiked up Grizzly peak. The hiking is more challenging. High water made the usual stream crossing impossible, but after some hunting we did find a downed tree that got us across easily. We encountered snow above about 5000 feet so didn't make it to the Summit. 

Opposing view of Jefferson from the peak is spectacular, but due to clouds we didn't get a chance to see the whole mountain. 

Apologies for the lousy track quality.  For some reason the early part of the track got erased by my Garmin. I'll try to fill it in later. 
Be sure to apply for permits early. They are required for entry and can be got from the Detroit Ranger Station 503-854-3366. 
This particular day - early season and a Friday, we were the only people on the trail.
