Mountain Lakes Wilderness- Located in the Klamath Ranger District, the 23,071 acre Mountain Lakes is one of the nation's original Wilderness Areas. Sky Lakes Wilderness- The 113,400 acre Sky Lakes Wilderness occupies the crest of the High Cascades, extending south from the boundary of Crater Lake National Park of Fourmile Lake.
Climate - Climate on the Winema changes drastically depending on elevation. The high elevations receive much more precipitation and colder temperatures. Much of the precipitation comes from October to April, mostly in the form of snow in the higher elevations. Winter temperatures can drop below zero degrees Fahrenheit. Late spring, summer and early autumn tend to bring clear, sunny days, with warm temperatures at the low elevations and moderate temperatures at the higher elevations. Summer afternoon thunderstorms are not uncommon.
