Tam McArthur Rim
October 15, 1989
The group left the S.E.H.S. parking lot at 7:30 a.m. arriving at Three Creek Lake at about 10:00.
As one member put it, it was a bluebird day.
The temperature was crisp and cool, just right for hiking.
The visibility was superb, crystal clear, with every mountain in the Cascades visible.
We arrived at the promontory above the lakes at a little before noon.
From there we could see Mt. Bachelor, Tumalo, Pilot Butte, the Three Sisters (Faith, Hope and Charity),
Mt. Washington, Three Fingered Jack, Mt. Jefferson, Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams, and Melvin Butte.
We stopped for lunch and then unanimously agreed to go for another hour along the rim
toward Broken Top.
This we did and had good views of the Snow Creek drainage area.
All in all this was an ideal fall hike with outstanding weather, visibility and people.
Those hiking were John Corliss, Don Fisher, Bob Foster, Marty Hathaway, Kristen Kaminski,
Barbara Kempf, Dot Leland, Dave Predeek, Ardys Ringsdorf, Betty Staeck, Suzanne Steussy
and John Kocher (leader).
