Rosary Lakes

February 9, 1985

Despite forecasts of bad weather, six hardy skiers headed for Willamette Pass all in one car. With snow at low elevations we were driving on snow for quite a while. The roads were slick; many folks were stopping to put on their tire chains. It snowed on us much of the day. After a time Elaine Barrar caught up to some of us. She turned back at the lower lake; soon after we met Bob and Leona Devine and Dick Barrar. They were scouting a trip for the following weekend and had come down from Eagle Peak.

When we reached the upper lakes, the snow was driven by a strong wind so we did not linger long for lunch. On the way out the sun tried to shine, but did not last long. At times a lot of snow was falling out of the trees. We were in about 15 inches of new snow and found about 3 inches of snow on the car when we reached it. It was snowing hard again and we had poor visibility for a time on the highway. We returned to Eugene at 5:30 p.m. The weather could have been more cooperative this day, but we enjoyed the outing. Skiers were Mari Baldwin, Sandra Larsen, Kathy Perkins, Linda Roe, Joe Turner and leader Norm Benton.
