June 10, 1979
It was a beautiful day for our hike to Tamolitch Pool.
All hikers arrived on schedule at McKenzie Bridge where they picked up four more
of our hikers, 14 in all.
We were on the trail before 10:00, hiked along the McKenzie River most of the way
stopping often to view the river and flowers.
The last half of the hike was climbing over moss-covered lava and through vine
Everyone was delighted with their first view of the beautiful aquamarine colored pool,
so clear you could see every stone on the bottom.
We climbed down to it after crossing the dry river bed, as the water in the pool
comes from underground, and had lunch.
It was so cool and refreshing after a hot hike we spent 1½ hours enjoying the beauty.
Arriving back at the cars about 3:30 everyone agreed it was a hard hike but worth it.
Lava hoppers were
Don and Geri Gott,
Bob & Bee Meserole,
Don and Barbara Payne,
Carol and Lonnie Bourgerie.
