Clear Lake Loop
November 4, 1990
The Clear Lake Loop is a nice hike anytime of the year; each season has a different color.
The color of the Obsidian hike on November 4 was shades of orange and yellow and brown interspersed
with the colors of Oregon mist.
The day was mild although a bit misty.
The group had lunch in the campground group shelter after visiting with the caretaker who
maintains some of the facilities during the winter.
Four units are available during the off season.
The hike started at the Santiam Wagon Road Trailhead across the highway from Fish Lake and made
the loop completely around the lake.
Hikers included Doris Allen, Barbara Chinn, Bob Dark, Ben Elkus, Maxine Hall, Sylvia Harvey,
Corinne Hunt, Mardi Klotz, Gary Marx, Anne Montgomery, Sharon Ritchie, Leah Rose, Hilma Volk
and leader Mary Ellen West.
