Hayrick Butte

March 27, 1983

Traction devices were required just before the Santiam summit, but caused little bother. Snow conditions were ideal, A-1 and perfect — clean, new powder and lots of it. Weather overcast, but turned out sunny later. No wind. The trip signup requirement of “pre-fitted snowshoe bindings” having been complied with, no time was lost in needless stops along the way. A little right-handed “body English” guided us to the south end of Big Lake! Mount Washington loomed (as usual) but was totally invisible. A unique “ice-house” structure, 25-ft. square and with roof timbers, was examined by our (camera-less) group. Noted were far fewer snowmobilers than usual, a goodly plus for this neat, cohesive trip. ’Shoeing it around Hayrick Butte were Peter Cecil, George Jobanek, Bonnie Ledford, Betty Legris, Ruth Romoser and leader John Cecil.
