ROSARY LAKES March 8. Keith Brunig, Ldr.
Eleven people left the Park Block very shortly after 9 a.m, in private cars and drove to the Willamette ski area at the top of the Willamette Pass. There some put on skis and some put on snowshoes and we started off on a trail leading off to the right of the area in the direction of the Rosary Lakes. It was a well packed trail which we started on about 11:30. We kept following it up and around the hill, along with stops to adjust snowshoe straps until we finally got over the top and started down the other side.
After we had gone down hill quite a distance and still didn't see anything but snow covered trees we came to the conclusion that somewhere we had missed the lake That was about 1:30 so we stopped and ate our lunch, (standing up) as there was no place to sit down, before starting the return trip. It had been sunny and nice from the time we left the ski area almost until we ate our lunch. Light clouds floated over and we got a little colder with just a light fluff of snow in the air. Just enough to add to the beauty of the forest. When we arrived back at the ski area, about 4:30 it was snowing harder. We thot we caught a glimpse of a lake at one point on the return trip. Perhaps better luck next time. Marvin Girardeau, Susan Girardeau, Bob, Tom and Chet Bauman, Bill Blattler, Art Johnson, Susan Wilkins, John Evans, Norm Tussing and Keith Brunig, Made up this party.
CAMPUS TOUR March 22.
A party of 12 met at the Park Block and drove to the campus, left the cars at the parking lot south of the Education building. We started toward the Museum and on the way we saw several shrubs and small trees coming out in bloom. After going thru the Museum of Art we went on to the north end of the campus intending to go thru the Museum of Natural History but found it closed which was disappointing. After looking at more flowering shrubs we returned to our cars. Those making the tour were: Elwina Meachem, Mr & Mrs Henry Oswald, Mrs Cox, Mr & Mrs Cornutt, Henry and Anna Jeppesen, Mr & Mrs Bob Kaneen, Nellie & Mac McWilliams, Leaders.
SPENCERS BUTTE March 15.
Eight persons made the trip to the top of the butte and found sunshine and as we watched, clouds cleared away from the 3 Sisters and partly from Mt Jefferson. On this climb were: Art Johnson, Susan Wilkins, Ray Sims, Thelma Watson, Henry & Anna Jeppesen, Mac McWilliams, Leader.
BOARD MEETING NOTES April 8.
Karl and Ruth Onthank were guests of the Board this night. Their visit was to promote interest in saving a small area around Iron Mountain. The plan is to have it classified as a botanical area and it is, indeed an interesting botanical area. It is also a most interesting geological area. It is easily accessible being close to the Santiam Hiway and a very moderate hike to the summit to any who would care to go all the way. The Board gave the request its support and instructed the Conservation and Scientific Committees to go to work on it. This project to be worked on with the Natural History Society.
A shelf mounted on the south wall to act as a serving table when needed to be mounted with hinges had been mentioned by some but the Board thot this would tend to give the wall a sort of cluttered look and the shelf would only serve from one side, so vetoed it and said that the problem would be given some other solution.
Stan Hasek reported all climbs have been planned and ready for the publishers. More in next Bulletin about climbing school.
Bill Martyn, youth, reported for Frank Moore and his Obsidian sponsered Explorer Scouts had a marvelous display at the Skill Show recently. This display showed among other things a complete showing of mountain climbing.
