To Visit Thielsen
There is a possibility of a week-end trip to Diamond lake, with a climb of Mt. Thielsen, and we will make a trip to the Fort Rock country, about 30 miles east of camp, an area interesting both geologically and for its Indian lore. Paulina peak, 5-mile high, offers a sporty rock climb, and from its summit there is a strikingly scenic view of the old crater and more distant views of the buttes, timbered plateau, and desert to the east and the south, and a wide stretch of the snow-capped Cascade range to the west. Mineral hot springs are available on East lake in two locations. The odd lava formations and cliffs of obsidian, from which the Indians used to make arrowheads, are highly interesting and very much in evidence in Newberry Crater.
Mrs. Rumford to Cook
Those who were in camp at the 1940 outing at Horseshoe lake in the Wallowa country, will remember the fine meals prepared by Mrs. Rumford—she’ll be with us again this year—so prepare to eat hearty and well.
We’ll see you at camp.
A new Obsedian, one who has been tested and found true—Mary Pennoyer. Everyone will be happy that she has earned her arrowheads.
Kind Lady: “How would you like a nice chop?”
Tramp: “Dat all depends, lady. Is it lamb, pork or wood?”
Prespectus 14th Annual Summer Outing, OBSIDIANS, INC.
The 1941 Obsidian summer camp will be held August 3 to 17, at East lake on the Deschutes National Forest. Besides an opportunity to explore territory unfamiliar to the Obsidians, the devotees of Isaac Walton’s favorite sport will have ample time to supply the camp table with fine trout from the lake. Come along—swim, hike, fish, hunt for arrowheads, or just lie around and acquire a deep sun-tan. Elevation at East lake, 6377 feet.
Driving distance from Eugene, 150 miles, by Willamette pass, and Dalles-California highway to a point 2 miles north of Lapine, then turn right, from this point it is 16 miles to the lake. Drive to the far end of the lake, turn in where indicated by the Obsidian arrows. Cars can be driven clear to the camp site.
The outing will cost $27.50 per person, and the fee includes:
1. Transportation from and to Eugene, and scheduled side trips.
2. All meals Sunday breakfast August 3 to Sunday breakfast August 17.

Mt. St. Helens? or both? The Mt. St. Helens climb is provisional on finding a leader. It will be an over-night trip, in any case, and ought to be a highlight of the year—very beautiful country.
JULY 27—Up the South Sister with Alvin Lynch as leader. And we’ll take advantage of being in the locality and climb Broken Top as well, with Bob Swennes and Ralph Johnson leading—and this time the ascent is planned from the east; something new.
AUGUST 3-17—And now comes Summer Camp. Hooray!
