Arrowhead Lake

September 2, 1995

Saturday, the first day of the Labor Day weekend, started overcast with a light drizzle. Half-way on our drive to the Obsidian Trailhead the weather cleared to a cloudless sky. We were heading into the Obsidian Falls area, one of the two new restricted areas; the Forest Service is monitoring this closely. A Ranger checked our permit at the trailhead. A second duo of Rangers checked it again as we left Arrowhead Lake. There were still many people on the trail. We hiked steadily uphill through the woods for 1½ hours and then crossed the Pacific Crest Trail and headed up the climbers’ trail with Little Brother on our left and the Middle Sister on the right. After a short scramble up to the Butte, we walked back to Arrowhead Lake. Sitting on the edge of the Butte for lunch we had a dramatic view of Little Brother, the North Sister and the valleys below us. After lunch we completed the Obsidian Falls loop past Sisters Spring and Obsidian Falls. Hikers were non-member Mel Zavodsky and Obsidians Jan & Rich Anselmo, Sharon Ritchie, Rick Strom, Rich Romm, Cheryl Berry, Dick Hildreth, Janet Hall, Sig Otto and trip leaders Sandy & Chuck Reul.
