HI Everybody!  i had to go down to the Bend area last week to pick up a snowmobile and seeing its a 7 hour drive one way we decided to do a quick overnighter on South Sister.

We took the southside climbers route and stayed at Moraine lake. it is 5.75 miles one way to the summit with a 5400ft elevation gain. Sorry no pictures of the first few miles.

  Last chance for water. this is the last water hole before the summit. you can not see the true summit from here just the summit rim.

my good friend on the summit. Mt Batcholer in the background.

looking north at Middle and North sisters. we hiked middle Sister back in 2009. behind that i do believe it goes Mt Jefferson, Mt Hood, and you can make out Mt adams! DSCF0024.jpg

Looking south.... one of many lava flows in the area. the little cone to the left of the flow is called Little Broken Top. you can make out Mt Thielsen left of the  picture.

I second that... What a cool hike! I love seeing those places out west that are so foreign to me. I’m a bit jealous of your big mountains out there. Thanks for showing!

Nice pictures DUI.  I really love that area.  Patman if you ever come out west Bend is not a bad place to set up operations.  Cool town close to lots of fun hiking, snowboarding, river rafting, mountain biking and fishing.

Very nice, I haven't done much out west, but what little I have has only served to whet my thirst for the higher ranges.
