September 12, 1993
We trip leaders with our partners and canoes met at S.E.H.S. at 8:00 am and drove the
approximately 85 miles to Summit Lake where we met the rest of our group.
They had camped in the area the night before.
We were on the lake by 10:30 and proceeded to tour the shore line.
It was a crisp and sunny day with some wind in the morning.
By lunch time we were on the lea side of the lake where we chose a sunny beach out of the wind.
At the water’s edge, we saw what appeared to be large bear tracks!!
Then back in the canoes to explore more bays and beaches including an informal campground of benches,
tables and fire pit — a good place for us to camp next year (thanks to the Boy Scouts perhaps?).
It was a sparkling day with beautiful clear water and with Diamond Peak ever present in the background,
though not very much snow up there.
Our trip consisted of four canoes and eight wonderful Obsidians:
Bob & Pat Dark, Donna & Bill Eimstad, Joella Ewing, Allan Sorenson
and leaders Mary Battin and Leona Devine.
