Black Crater

August 28, 1976

Everyone left Eugene at about 8:00 a.m. on a beautiful morning. We arrived at the trailhead at 10:15 a.m. The weather was really fantastic. Could see many of the peaks from the road, before we ever started our hike to the top. Everyone hiked at their own pace and all seemed to have a very good time, enjoying the scenery along the trail and the views outward from it. The party spread itself out according to the pace each person wanted to set, but it was a nice hike for everyone. No one felt rushed, and everyone made it to the top. Once on top we had practically unlimited visibility. Could see Mt. Adams in Washington, as well as all the other peaks. Have never seen Mt. Hood any clearer than I did on this day.

Everyone had their lunch out in the sun, and some even decided to take a little nap after lunch. I enjoyed leading this group very much, as everyone was very congenial and all seemed to enjoy the trip. This is a nice trip to take at this time of year. The fall color is just beginning to show in some places, and the hike up is not overly strenuous and very scenic. Hope to do this one again sometime.

Hiking and enjoying the trip were: Peggy Abraham, Carol Bourgerie, Lonnie Bourgerie, Christine, Mark, Theresa, and Al Gamache, the leader, Dorothy Hayes, Dot Leland, Ralph Nafziger, Art Porter, Arran, Kevin, and Parker Riddle, Mamie Scott, Tess Smith, Virginia Wiles, and Jim Wood.
