Mt Scott, Headwaters Rogue River (Crater Lake area)

August 23-24, 1986

Departed Saturday, August 23 from South Eugene High parking lot. We had clear skies and a beautiful day. Set up camp at Lake West. After lunch Karen and Paul went rafting and Bob Foster had a cool refreshing swim in the lake. The group spent a pleasant afternoon leisurely hiking back to Boundry Springs, the headwaters of the Rogue River — easy hike, trail in great shape. While sitting around the campfire in the evening, Karen and Paul Cohen treated us to a surprise campers cobbler — delicious. (Be sure to ask for the recipe.)

Awoke Sunday morning to a clear, but somewhat cool day. After breakfast we departed Lake West for Mt. Scott, the highest point in the Crater Lake National Park. Although it was a beautiful day, there were so many forest fires in the area that it was hazy and the view was not as spectacular as we had hoped. Trail up the mountain was in great shape; a 5 mile round trip, moderate hike. We had a picnic at the Vidae Falls picnic area then proceeded to the Rim Village to do the usual tourist things before loving for home.

Nonmembers attending were Karen and Paul Cohen, members were Bob Foster, Fred Schepman, and leaders, Harlo and Marty Perrin.
