Hoodoo to Suttle Lake

February 15, 1986

Although the weather and show conditions can only be described as marginal (“crummy” is better), the positive and upbeat attitude of those who participated made the outing an exhilarating and learning experience. One of the main lessons learned is that we probably would not want to ski under conditions that prevailed on a regular basis. It rained most of the time and we had to break trail almost the entire distance.

Despite the difficulty, all involved expressed a desire to press on, always accentuating the positive (even those tasks considered “man’s work”). We completed the trip late in the afternoon, and after grabbing a quick cup of coffee, hot chocolate, etc. we made the descending auto trip pausing only for diversionary activities as pushing another motorist from a snow drift end fixing a flat tire (“man’s work”). As you might guess, a sense of humor was also a useful and much demonstrated characteristic of this event.

My thanks to the following trail breakers/sloggers: Elaine and Dick Barrar, Jane Hackett, Jan Baker Jacobsen, Sandra Larsen, Royal Murdock, Don Stair, Brad Thompson and Scott (last name not known), plus leader Tom Woxell.
