We visited on Aug. 24, 2005.  It was a bit hazy probably from forest fire smoke.  We were on the way to take the boat tour of the lake which stops and lets passengers off at a dock on the south side of the island.  There’s a trail to the top.  By coincidence, the Governor of Oregon was on the boat sitting right behind us.
