Three Mile Lake

April 9, 1977

Left at 9:00 a.m. on schedule, made a rest stop at Linslaw County Park and arrived at about 10:45 at Tahkenitch Lake Campground. Margaret Markley was waiting there already, and a few minutes later the Baldwins joined us, who were spending the weekend at the coast. Leader made introductions during “Obsidian Circle” welcoming our visitors from Germany, the Ludwigs, and prodigal son Lee Hatch, currently nonmember teetering on the brink of returning to the fold. At half-point we stopped for mid-hike rest and snack, enjoying the mighty ocean, silver against the cloudless blue sky. Arrived at the lake before 1:00 p.m.; here, too, the signs of the drought: a greatly shrunk lake, but still enough water to go swimming later in the year. Perfect calm and quiet, NO DUNE BUGGIES IN SIGHT, no other hikers either. On return, the Baldwins and Margaret Markley headed straight for the cars while the rest of the party detoured to the beach to wiggle toes in sand and sea. Again: all was calm, all was bright. To top off a perfect hike we stopped at Arlene’s Cafe in Elkton for home-made pie and ice cream and was it ever goood! Hikers were Margaret and Ewart Baldwin, Gladys Grancorvitz, Lee Hatch, Karen Houglum, Hannelore Ludwig-Hilsmann, Bernd Ludwig, Margaret Markley and leader Helmut Plant.
