October 7, 1989
We all hope scheduled leader Norman Benton has recovered from his aches and pains by the time
you read this.
Thanks to Dave Predeek, arrangements at the S.E.H.S. parking lot went smoothly and the six hikers
left the lot at 8:10 a.m. for the Willamette Pass in two cars.
The fall colors were brilliant and at their peak on vine maple, big leaf maple and huckleberry
along Route 58.
The hike was an easy 7 miles on excellent trail as far as we hiked to Upper Rosary Lake.
This is part of the P.C.T. which is maintained by Obsidians.
The hikers lunched in the ware fall sun, ate the last of the few huckleberries on the branches
and watched small trout rising for insects just a few feet offshore.
We shared the Rosary Lakes area and trail with a small group of Scouts who were camping between
the Upper Rosary Lakes.
Our six hikers proved to be a very compatible and amiable group, and we would be pleased if the
four non-sembers became new members: Hikers included Dorothy Burton, Jane Corliss, Jean Gillett,
Lanelda Watts, Betty Jean Wylie and John Corliss (substitute leader).
