September 14, 1988
The weather was warmer than I had hoped, the trail was dusty and skies smokey from a forest
fire out of Oakridge.
These glum facts, though true, do not give an adequate report of our trip.
Eight participants made it a GOOD DAY!
Ethel Steussy was someone whom I had not met before and it was nice to sake a new friend.
Mary Millman has come with us each of the three times I have led this Rigdon Lake trip.
That surely warms my heart.
Gladys Grancorvitz and I have many shared memories of past trips together.
Bill Morse, husband and friend, came along as a hiker, helper and driver.
Bob Foster was on a trip where we attempted to climb the South Sister.
That was many years ago.
Mary Bridgeman was the leader of the first Obsidian hike that Bill and I ever made.
That, too, was many years ago.
The world-traveler and hiker Norm Benton had not been to Rigdon Lake before.
It was nice to have him along and show him some of Oregon.
He was also a driver.
We appreciate these people who are willing to share their cars and to transport us to our destination.
The three men took a side trip to the top of Rigdon Butte — led by Bob.
It was a GOOD DAY, especially enjoyed by the leader Lois Morse.
