Pengra Pass, Bechtel Shelter
December 21, 1996
This ski trip to Gold Lake turned out to be a trip to Bechtel Shelter, part way to Midnight Lake
with a return along the Bechtel Creek Trail.
The trail to Gold Lake hadn’t been broken so we decided to traverse on the broken one
heading west into Pengra Pass.
Three of us (Joshua Ladau, Ray Mikesell and leader Diane Jeffcott) enjoyed excellent skiing conditions,
good company, snow packed roads and a warm fire in the shelter.
We had a fine time skiing while it lightly snowed throughout the entire day — it couldn’t
have been better … unless more skiers had signed up!
