Beautiful, clear skies provided an added plus to this magnificent hike.
The Corvallis contingent met the Eugene contingent at Clear Lake.
(To the hikers who drove to another (?) Clear Lake … we are sorry you missed this fantastic trip!)
We drove north off of Hwy. 20 about 10 miles to the Pyramid trailhead.
The six-mile round trip hike gains 1700 feet in elevation and passes through beautiful stands
of ancient Pacific Silver Fir and Noble Fir four to five feet thick.
Towards the top of the trail to Middle Pyramid, we saw Alaska Yellow Cedar, Sub Alpine Fir and
Panoramic views were plentiful along the trail.
At the top, a flattened area where an old fire lookout had been provided a nice spot for lunching,
resting, and viewing the Middle Santiam Wilderness to the west and the large Cascade mountains
to the east.
Hiking to this splendid area were David & Dale Lindamood, Donna Goles, Bea Fontana, Gene Thaxton,
Barb Eisen, Hawke Williams, Marge Sutor and leaders Barbara & Edward Trione.
