South Sister Hike via the Green Lakes approach 10-4-15

Sunday was a nice day to hike up South Sister…the long way. First time up this route for both Deb and I. Kind of a bouldery scree slog…very scenic though.

    Nice route. I wish that I had your gpx file prior to doing this one in September. Lost the route 2/3 of the way up while slogging through the sand. If in doubt, head towards the stream! Thanks for making your routes public, I will be using them in the future.
