September 8, 1974
A very delightful trip and the credit can be laid to the fact that there were
so many delightful people.
A slight chill at the summit of the pass indicated that fall was not far away.
We took the new trail high above North Matthieu Lake and stopped for a snack soon
after at South Matthieu.
While two industrious compass map readers were at work figuring how to find
Yapoah Lake, the leader kept discreetly behind hoping no one would find out that
he didn’t know the way to the lake.
Very soon we came upon a well used trail and followed it to the most beautiful
lakeside scenery that could be imagined.
High winds on the ridge overlooking the lakes, the craters and the jagged peaks
prevented us from tarrying long, so we descended to the cars, watching small
vortexes form in the clouds, indicating rain, which was to come during the night.
On this one:
