McKenzie River Trail
January 15, 1983
The winter quiet at Trail Bridge was a nice contrast to the noisy bustle of
summertime campers and fishermen.
The morning was crisp but comfortable for hiking and got crisper as we went up river.
The blue pool at Tamolich Falls was beautiful as ever with lots of water cascading
out from the springs.
Having our resident geologist along usually inspires geology talk, and this time
was no exception.
We spent lunch time speculating on the site of the next volcanic eruption.
(Don’t buy a condo at Mammoth Lakes.)
This very pleasant day assures us of the value of this beautiful trail for year
round hiking pleasure.
A nice group of people who like to walk at varying speeds enjoyed the trail,
some seeing this portion for the first time.
Hikers were nonmembers Charlotte, Philip and Don Nordling, Jeanie Holmes,
Obsidians were Margaret and Ewart Baldwin, Don and Barbara Payne, Suzanne Steussy,
Lee Hatch, Fred Schepman, Bernie Claypool and leader Betty Legris.
