Honey Lakes

July 29-31, 1977

Left Eugene at 9:00 a.m. en Friday arriving at the trailhead at 10:50 a.m. Just before we arrived at the trailhead a large doe jumped right in front of the car. 11:20 we started hiking; 66°; and arrived at Buck Meadow at 4:20 p.m. The six miles this far sure seemed long. Pete cleaned up the shelter and we departed for Honey Lakes, and arrived there at 5:50 p.m. The mosquitoes were very heavy all the way to the lake! We set up camp, soaked out feet in the lake, and ate dinner at 8:00 p.m. Mark caught one fish but it got off as he reeled it into shore. 9:40 to bed in tents as there were too many mosquitoes!

After breakfast on Saturday we hiked up to view Separation Canyon; an excellent view of the Sisters, too. We took a cross-country compass course back to the lake. After lunch some rested, Mark fished, and Paula went swimming. Later in the afternoon Dave caught a nice trout, but it fell off while he was lifting it out of the water. We all had fun soaking our feet, and also watching the human wildlife!

Left the lake at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday and arrived at the car at 3:00 p.m. During our lunch break we had a little humming bird as a guest. We made real good time coming out, as it took us only four hours of hiking for the 7.2 miles. A real nice group of hikers, who had trouble hearing each other all the time, as everybody would say “Huh?” or “What did you say?” Fantastic weather, nice scenery, and billions of mosquitoes! Overnighters were Peter Cecil, Paula Vehrs, and Cheryl, Mark and leader David Zevenbergen.
