Clark Butte Trail
March 12, 1978
A fine spring day—a little sun, a little rain, a few clouds and some snow pellets.
Route was first Obsidian trek via the new Helen Smith cut-off, which was dedicated
as well as possible observing the Obsidian prohibition of alcoholic beverages.
Thence up the trail.
Two inches of snow had been ordered for the ridge but only a dusting had been delivered.
Still enough to brighten up the landscape.
Lunch sitting atop a stump—Helen’s guess 500 years.
Angie climbed a slope to take a picture and scared up two deer.
Back down observing the flora, especially the pretty blue and yellow and white flowers.
A stop in Lowell at the Japanese-American Inn for refreshment and home.
