August 26, 1995
A prompt, congenial group gathered and set off for the High Cascades Matthieu Lakes hike shortly
after 8:00 on August 26.
The weather was exquisite, a completely blue sky overhead with a few wisps of white clinging to
Three Fingered Jack.
It was cool enough on the uphill to see people digging in packs for sweaters.
Upon reaching South Matthieu, three hikers explored the cinder cone immediately north of the lake.
We returned via North Matthieu, completing a thoroughly enjoyable loop hike.
We were six non-members and five Obsidians: Mary Millman, Sherry O’Shea, Julie Bien, Max Brown,
Mardi Klotz, Kurt Cyrus, Jeanie Currier, Elinor Wilkerson, Joe Bentsen (from Bend),
Dick Bentsen & Mary Bentsen (leader).
