September 16, 1995
It was overcast in Eugene but it was sunny in the mountains.
We hiked from Scott Lake to Hand Lake and then up the Hand Lake Trail to the north side
of Scott Mountain.
We followed a long-abandoned trail up the steep north face of the mountain and hiked through
rough meadows and past rock outcrops.
We made a short side trip to a beautiful, unnamed lake.
There were fine views of Mt. Washington and Mt. Jefferson across lava beds to the north.
At the summit we had a leisurely lunch and took in the view.
On the way down some of us had a cool dip in Benson Lake.
Enjoying the fine late summer weather in the mountains were Max Brown, Blyth Carpenter, Eun Hee Chen,
Kurt Cyrus, Larry Huff, Vi Johnson, Helen Liguori and trip leader Dave Predeek.
