Headed out to do a 70 mile/4 day loop through the Mt. Jefferson Wilderness and around Three Finger Jack. Unfortunately, an unforeseen storm broke my spirit and caused me to cut the trip short.

Started from the Pamelia Lake Trailhead at about 1330. It was overcast, but the weather forecast showed it was supposed to be sunny and in the 70s until some scattered light rain arrived on Thursday. However, shortly after Pamelia Lake it started to lightly rain and it only increased as I climbed up to Hunt's Cove. Fortunately I brought my full rain gear, but I really didn't feel like spending the next several days dealing with rain, so I made a quick decision to cut my loop short and head over to Coyote and Shale Lakes for the evening. I got a nice campsite tucked back in the trees between the two lakes and had an early dinner while I waited for the rain to subside, then I spent the evening wandering around the lakes and watching the clouds blow over Mt. Jefferson.

Woke to clearer skies in the morning and briefly considered continuing on my longer trip as planned, but I didn't feel like dealing with the hassle of drying out wet gear and having to backtrack several hours to get back on course, so I headed back down.
