Collier Glacier View
August 28-29, 1993
We had a lot of fun in a beautiful place.
On our way in we skipped lightly through a couple of miles of lava and on to South Matthieu Lake.
We passed a few other hikers, but not many.
Our camp site was at Minnie Scott Spring, a lovely spot.
The wind came up about 10 p.m. and rattled our tents all night long.
The leader regretted the “slap-dash” method by which she had erected her tent;
she therefore got out of the tent in the middle of the night to tighten things up and was
instantly felled by the wind-chill factor!
Next morning, a late rising, coffee, etc., and two of our party set off to Collier Glacier View.
The views, as expected, were stupendous.
After a leisurely morning, we returned via North Matthieu Lake and a long, painful trek on tired
feet through the lava beds.
Campers were Barb Elsen, Wayne Ford and leader Susan Baker.
