Santiam Pass to McKenzie Pass

August 18, 1982

Excellent (hot!) weather conditions and superb views of solid-looking Mount Washington were enjoyed by this very compatible Wednesday group, hiking across Washington Wilderness section of the PCNST (Santiam Pass (Big Lake) to McKenzie Pass.) Ex-Obsidian, Princess Virginia Meissner (of Bend) was encountered at the trailhead. A leisurely lunch break at “the usual spot” fitted in well with the mood of the hike, and a “lost” horsepacker was observed on the trail. On the downhill segment, some members of the party took a sidetrip to Little Belknap Crater. Dedicated car-shuttlers Elaine Groner and Betty Legris gave invaluable and much-appreciated support — indeed, without their rather involved and time-consuming 3-car shuffle this hike could not have taken place! Mid-week “Pass-to-Passers” were Wilbur Groner, Joanne Haines, Ruth and Wayne Lill, Joe Lowry, Dan Sellard, Suzanne Steussy, June Wallace, Alan Wicker, and leader John Cecil.
