Pengra Pass

March 21, 1982

It was a too good to be true, winter wonderland, bright sunny sky kind of day. Diamond Peak stood out like a giant mound of ice cream against a sapphire sky. Those who could, peeled to short sleeves; those who couldn’t wished they could. The nearly untouched meadow at the pass was a maze of cross-hatches when we left — well practiced and more competent skiers after 2½ hours of playing on the surrounding hills and trails.

Three of us broke a trail over glittery crystalized sugar-looking snow toward the train tracks to witness the 12:20. We heard how close we had come as the train came by 40 minutes late and after we had turned back. Mary Hogan enjoyed standing like a scarecrow, letting the gray jays land on her arms. We all hated to leave when it was time to go.

Skiers were Joella Ewing, (leader), Gladys Grancorvitz, Mary Hogan, Roberta Kalbfleisch, Sandra Larsen, Ann Morsello and Lays Riley.
