Scott Mountain

August 19, 1981

A thick overcast felt a little ominous when we, all three of us, left Eugene. But just before the top of the McKenzie grade we came out into the sun accompanied by a clear sky and a light breeze. Hooray! We were on the trail (good but dusty) by 9:00 a.m. and on top of Scott Mtn. by 11:30 a.m. A side trip to the Tenas Lakes produced three joys: good scenes of the three larger lakes, one mosquito, and ripe blueberries — many of them — at the trail intersection.

At the top, clear air gave fine views of the Three Sisters and mountains north, and toward the west we looked down on Eugene still covered by fog. Since the day was still young when we reached Benson Lake on the return trip, two unambitious members of the party enjoyed the edge of the lake while Wilbur hiked around it. Members of the small but select party were Wilbur Groner, Fred Schepman and leader Helen Hughes.
