TIPSOO BUTTE - OCT. 10th. 1971
Twelve enthusiastic people chose a very gorgeous day to see the view on Tipsoo Butte.Much to the delight of the"appointed" leader, a logging road near Walker Creek shortened the steady incline of the 5 mile hike by l½ miles. It took only 2½ hours to arrive on top. Some members of the party took short jaunts to "dry"..... springs and one trip around the Southeast side of the butte to view French Pete.... Valley.
What a gorgeous day it was! The trees were changing their colors and the sun was extremely warm. The bear grass and rocky niches on Tipsoo were ideal for nap taking. We were sorry to see this hike come to a close, but happy at the thot of only descending 3½ miles on this steep butte instead of the usual 5.
For those folks who climbed Tipsoo in the rain clouds in the spring of 1969.... Alas! The sun does shine* on Tipsoo Butte And what a find!!!
Happy were Mary Bridgeman, Tom Briton, David Hatch, Lee Hatch, Wayne Hatch,Wes Prouty,Marianne Sandstrom,Lois Schriener, Helen Smith,Joe Walicki, David Wallace and the leader Liz"Tipsoo"Glover.

HISTORY OF THE OBSIDIANS
by Ray Sims No. 89
We gathered at 10 that Saturday evening of May 19th, 1962, in the "Worlds Fair" grounds in Seattle, and our Greyhound bus took us back to our motel in Auburn 22 miles south of Seattle.
We were so glad to have Blanche Bailey with us because she was only signed when Smith Mountjoy could not go.
Another stay in Auburn,but up early and back to the "Fair" grounds. To our liking was the Greyhound bus had a place in the
Some took the new "Monorail" back to Seattle for its novelty, but there was plenty to see, "like the $1,000,ooo in silver dollars".
And food, food, food from all countries and I found Ken Lodewick at the "Fretos" stand, a tasty morsel,the Science display and many other wonderful things to see.
At 5 p.m. we again met at the Greyhound and headed back to Eugene with much s singing and recounting those wonderful 3 days
We also took another Greyhound trip in '62 up to Portland to the new Lloyds Center where we spent another delightful day.
