Ski Tour to Midnight Lake
March 19, 1977
The trip was put over from March 12 to March 19 due to weather conditions.
We started out from the Gold Lake-Pengra Pass turn-out on Highway 58 proceeding
on Pengra Pass Road for about a mile and a half.
It was snowing lightly but snow temperature varied considerably from place to
place requiring re-waxing for the “waxer,” and some downhill paraffin
even for the “non-waxers.”
At the Odell Lake trail junction we left the beaten path and zigzagged uphill to
the ridge where we met the Pacific Crest Trail, and we reached Midnight Lake after
another two miles.
After lunch at the lake the snow was cooler and trip down hill faster.
