Obsidian Falls

September 20, 1992

It was a letter perfect hiking day, but also the final day of the Eugene Celebration, which perhaps is why only four people gathered for a magnificent hike into the Three Sisters Wilderness. Starting at the Obsidian Falls trailhead, we hiked through dense forest for 3½ miles to emerge onto a lava flow and a spectacular view of the Cascades from Mt. Jefferson to the Middle Sister. After a short break we proceeded onward to the Obsidian Loop. Most interesting was discovery of a metal plate set into a rock face that was a memorial to Harlon Prouty. We then found many “perfect” pieces of obsidian as we ambled across the Arrowhead Lake alpine plateau to our lunch spot at a small spring near Obsidian Falls. Hikers included non-Obsidian Janet Leavitt, and Obsidians Marty Hathaway, Sandy Reul and trip leader Chuck Reul.
