September 15, 1996
Thirteen persons had signed up for this Sunday Rock Mesa trip; however, when the rain storms
began Saturday afternoon, cancellation calls began coming and by Sunday 8:00 am a decision had been
made to change the destination from the 2½ hour drive to the trailhead at Devil’s Lake
(elevation 5440') (Rock Mesa elevation 6400') to something closer and lower elevation
(snow was forecast at 5000').
Consensus among the remaining member participants was Clear Lake, with our lone non-member simply
wanting to go for a hike with his grandma and the Obsidians.
Enjoying the trip around Clear Lake, a stick race at the bridge, and a group of Volkswalk persons
including Obsidian Shirley Froyd, were non-member Matthew Johnson, members Rita Johnson and
Joanne Vinton and leader Vi Johnson.
