I paid a late-September visit to Indian Heaven Wilderness. It's a high undulating plateau filled with lakes. I hiked in from the East Crater trailhead and camped at Elk Lake. I did a dayhike from there via some cross-country and the old, abandoned version of the Pacific Crest Trail, to Chenamus Lake, and then regular trails back to Elk Lake.

Okay, so there was a meadow, too

And from an unnamed pond, one of the best reflections. First, the reflection part.
