January 11, 1994
Nine privileged mid-week skiers set out from Eugene at the civilized hour of 9:00 am.
We picked up one more skier in Dexter, and arrived at Gold Lake Sno-Park before 11:00.
The day was warm and sunny, and there was plenty of snow.
We skied to Midnight Lake via the Pacific Crest Trail, had a reasonably leisurely lunch, and skied
back via Otter Pond, through the woods, then a lovely glide down Deer Creek Road.
After the leader performed a few minor auto repairs (tightened a nut on her windshield wiper
and jump-started one of the other cars), this congenial, talkative and diverse group, which included
a railroad hostler, pet sitter, civil engineer and school librarian among others, who ranged in age
from college students through seniors, headed back to Dexter and Eugene.
Skiers were non-members Jane B. Happy, Giles Healey, Carla Levinski, Kyle Merriam and Juliene Valentine,
and Obsidians Leona Devine, Steve Johnson, Jean Ridone, Tim Verkler and leader Joyce Owen.
