A hundred years ago this meadow near Mt. Adams, was part of “Trout lake,” its waters teeming with wild trout, in South-Central Washington State.  A process of siltation has by now turned most of the lake into a meadow, with a small stream (Trout Lake Creek) still running through it. Seen here in mid October 2016 the yellow-orange hues of Autumn are intensified by the rising sun.
