July 17, 1988
We got to the starting point, Jack Lake, at 10:15 and were soon ready for our hike around
Three Fingered Jack, and our swim in Santiam Lake.
We hiked into Canyon Creek Meadow, which was half snow covered, rested and snacked before climbing
up the steep scree slope to the Crest Trail, then to the west of the mountain over many snowbanks
until we could see Santiam Lake about two miles down the hill.
After a long and refreshing swim we hiked back to the Crest Trail, over the south ridge of Jack
and back to the cars by 8:15.
A long, difficult but rewarding day.
Lake swimmers were Leona Devine, Bob Foster, Marty Hathaway, Suzanne Steussy, Richard Lundt,
Courtney Wells and Lee Hatch (leader).
