September 2, 1995
Overcast skies gave way to Sunshine as we arrived at the trailhead 20 miles southeast of
Hills Creek Dam.
Sweeping, panoramic views of still partially snow covered Diamond Peak awaited us there.
Shortly, the ten of us were munching on ripe, succulent huckleberries as we began our leisurely
four-mile trek to glacially sculpted Divide Lake nestled at the southwest toe of Mt. Yoran.
The trail was well traveled and excellent.
Divide Lake is a two-acre “emerald jewel” with nearby Mt. Yoran looking down on it.
After a very leisurely lunch — and exploration of three even tinier lakes immediately
at hand — we headed back for our cars.
Mary Millman set a steady pace out.
We had seen several campers at the lake and we met a dozen or more coming in at mid-afternoon.
A good time was had by all!
Guests were Allan Coons, Roy Dwyer, Jim Fritz, Donelda Higgins, Larry Huff,
Dick & Rosemary Mulligan, and Gerry Paulson.
Obsidians were Mary Millman and trip leader Marc Hansen.
