Mt Yoran

September 15, 1984

After a rest stop at Greenwaters Park in Oakridge we proceeded to the Hills Creek Dam and forest road 23 southeast from there. We arrived at the parking lot by trailhead only to find someone had pitched a tent at the entrance to the trail. In jest they invited us to walk through their tent to get on the trail! We almost took them up on their offer. It had evidently rained the night before and the woods felt clean and cool in the morning sun. After a couple of rest stops we reached Divide Lake at noon and decided we had enough energy to reach the top of the ridge that leads to the peak for lunch. The lunch spot provided an unobstructed view of the full face of Diamond Peak. After lunch practically everyone decided to try the scramble over the rocks to the top. On top we were kept busy trying to identify all the landmarks and soaking up the sun. It was a beautiful day with scarcely a breeze at the top, 7180 ft. The way back was uneventful. All except two were back at the parking lot by, 4 p.m. Those two were looking for a spot to enter and take a dip in Notch Lake. Inasmuch as their wives have not called the leader, it is presumed they also found their way back to Eugene.

Yoran trekkers were Dan Bates, Mae Jackson, Win Liepe, Ruth and Wayne Lill, Ken Masterson, Helmut Plant, Helen Reed, Elinor and Lisa Wilkerson, and leader Richard Heinzkill.
