Black Butte

July 20, 1983

This all-Obsidian hike consisting of John Cecil, Bonnie Ledford, and leader Betty Legris, was scheduled for Bachelor Butte, but changed to Black Butte due to adverse weather. Ours was the lone party making the full ascent from Metolius Road, but we met many other vacationers at the upper parking area.

The scars of the fire 2 years ago are not even beginning to heal, a long slow process in this high, dry climate. Much to the leader’s relief, but of great disappointment to John, the public is no longer allowed on the aging wood 90 foot fire tower. However, the view was great from solid ground.
