Maxwell Butte

October 7, 1979

The threatening skies at Eugene and the warm October sun in the mountains.

The beginning of the fall foliage season—at its brightest near Fish Lake. The Osprey nest and the scant water at Twin Lakes.

Hogg Rock and Hayrick Butte. For the dreaming skiers, Hoodoo and Potato Hill.

An unnamed pothole north of Lost Lake. Mt, Washington and the Sisters—Bold North, Complacent Middle and Shy South hiding from us.

Black Butte appearing and rising higher as we near the top.

At the top, the cordillera of the high Cascades—from Mt. Hood to Broken Top with the fist of Three Fingered Jack standing guard to the East across the valley.

The lakes—Mowich, Duffy, Santiam, the Berleys and barely visible over a low valley ridge, Craig. (Helen Hughes: please take note).

Bees at the top contending for our lunch. The dusty and, in spots, badly eroded trail.

Twenty-six started and 26 made the top. A fine day—a good hike—a fond remembrance for Dan Bates, Dick and Mary Bentsen, Tom Trinton, Joyce Brooker, Hal Busby, Judy Carmody, Bob Devine, Joanne Haines, Ruth and Wayne Lill, Joe Lowry, Helen Lynch, Karen Seidell, Helen Smith, Jessie Smith, Anna Snortland, Robin Steussy, Kathi Stroh, Lin Trombley, Bob Walden, Donna Wolcott, Mike Wright and Mary Ann Yelnosky-Smith. Co-leaders were Parker Riddle and Wilbur Groner, who thank the above for their quiet harmony and good fellowship.
