Proxy Falls

January 30, 1982

Because of lack of parking space where we had originally planned to start from plus the fact that the highway was closed on each day this leader reserved for a scouting trip, the Booth Lake snowshoe trip by map and compass was changed to Proxy Falls by road and trail. We couldn’t have asked for a better day for this first snowshoe trip of 1982. The six-mile trip lasted from 10:40 a.m. to 3:40 p.m. with a pleasant lunch break in the sun above the McKenzie Highway with the sound of Proxy Falls in the background. The falls were beautiful—as always—and we had the added pleasure of seeing tracks left by birds, rabbits, squirrels, coyotes, deer and a bounding bobcat.

We had some beginners and some experienced snowshoers, and it made little difference: as we alternated between socializing three abreast and stepping out rapidly in single file. Those enjoying a comfortable trip on a sunny Saturday were John Cecil, Lee Hatch, Karen Houglum, Helen Hughes, Betty Legris, Joe Lowry, Bryant and Lucille Mitchell, Fran Moravcsik, Wes Prouty, Shirley Sivula, Paula Vehrs, Margaret Wiese and leader Phyllis Ford.
