camped at Big Lake to enjoy swimming and soon discovered Patjen trail head.

depending on which direction of loop you take you will do part of the hike through a old forest burn. great to see all the new plant life already flourishing.

Pleasantly surprised to see some of the Cascade mountains at one point, and came across three small lakes. mosquito repellent was definitely necessary.
