June 4, 1989
Ten people arrived in Roseburg under Wes Prouty’s guidance and sign-up sheet expertise.
We were soon on our way up the North Umpqua Hwy. about SO miles, turning off at road #4770
for another 10 miles (up all the way) to end of road.
The trail to the lakes is 1&frace12; miles and is an easy grade with several views along the way.
At the 1¼-mile mark the trail junctions and we elected to take the trail up to a rocky cliff
viewpoint high above the lakes to have lunch and enjoy a fantastic view looking down on the lakes
and seeing from Mt. Bailey, Thielsen and Diamond Peak to the distant Three Sisters area.
I mean we had a very beautiful day.
After lunch we went back down and walked around both lakes.
We heard a loud whoop when Bob Foster hit the water for a very short dip.
Burr, it sure looked cold to us with snowbanks along one side and in the trees.
There was heavy snow on the trail up to the viewpoint also, due to heavy falls this past winter.
As the snow melted the flowers were showing up too.
We were back at the parking lot and heading down and toward home by 3:30 p.m.
Those on the trip were: Bob Foster, Rebecca Hansen, Ray Mikesell, Mary Millman, Robin Prentice,
Virginia Prouty, Wes Prouty, Henrietta Richmond, Ardys Ringsdorf, Mel Zavodsky,
and yours truly, leader Lloyd Plaisted.
