October 27, 1973
The week before when I took 18 UO students up Carpenter Mountain to scout it
out it was all pea-soup fog.
Today Obsidians and 9 non-members were able to admire snow-capped Hood, Jack,
Washington, the Sisters, Bachelor and Diamond under a sparkling blue sky.
Obsidians Gloria Hanan and Mary Bridgeman deserve three stars for hauling big
bags of garbage off the look-out (that was garbage, my 18 students hauled their
own stuff away).
Perfect Indian Summer weather.
Still I’d recommend moving this hike down to the early part of October
(I got snowed out, and/or in a couple years of age on a 24 of October).
Only disappointment of whole trip:
White Water cafe in Blue River was out of Boysenberry pie when we stopped on our
way back to Eugene.
On top of the mountain were:
Mary Jane Arpin,
Carleen & Elliott & Mary Bridgeman,
Bev & Lynn Rich Juilfs,
Wai Lau Man,
Doug & Judy Robertson,
and the leader,
Helmut R. Plant.
