Eleven had signed up and hoped to go on the trip to Rock Mesa, but a forest fire
which began the night before prevented access to the trailhead.
Six people still wanted to hike in the high country so we visited North and South Matthieu Lakes,
viewed the high country east and north of the upper lake and enjoyed a beautiful sunny day,
although some smoke from the fire drifted between the Sisters.
Obsidians Helen Liguori, Mary Millman, Karen Seidel, Nola Shurtleff, Margee Wright and
trip leader Violet Johnson enjoyed the water at both lakes.
