October 13, 1990
While waiting for a no-show, we gained two others.
Raining lightly at the trailhead, it soon settled down to no more than a sprinkle, with some snow
mixed in at times.
At other times, nothing was falling, and we even saw our shadows on occasion.
In open areas, we sometimes were making tracks in the white snow that covered the ground.
The trail was in good condition, with only one log across the trail, but it was high enough
to go under.
On the lower slopes, we saw evidence of a windstorm, with many trees down.
A detour led around the worst of these.
We had an early lunch at the upper lakes.
With the cold temperature and a drizzle, we did not climb the slopes leading up to Rosary Rock,
but headed out, and returned to town at 2:40 p.m.
Enjoying the hike, in spite of the sometimes cool and damp weather were non-Obsidians Martha Berndt
and Kevin Clark, and Obsidians Paula Vehrs and Norm Benton (leader).
