  • This photo taken on Sept. 7, 2015, shows a meadow as views of the Three Sisters highlight the summit of Scott Mountain, in Lane County, Ore. The pathway to one of Oregon's most beautiful viewpoints begins at a sign so inconspicuous most people barely take notice.  “User trail,” says the sign, located on the north side of Benson Lake. “Not maintained.”  Not much to get excited about, right?

The mountain lake spreads out below, a rich sapphire blue, while the Three Sisters rise so high and close it feels as though you could reach out and touch them.
