Midnight Lake

March 7, 1998

The morning was chilly and the snow pillow soft for my birthday loop trip to Midnight Lake. We went in a clockwise direction so we quickly warmed on our ascent up the roller coaster bumps and curves of the Pacific Crest Trail. Though we passed several people on our way up the trail, we had the lake to ourselves for a sunny noon lunch. The descent through the trees and then down the road from Bechtel Shelter was fun but ended too quickly. We extended our adventure by visiting Westview Shelter on our way back to the car park. A recurring question for all of us was where were the skiers on this glorious cross-country skiing day? Waiting for Godot, perhaps? We four Obsidians knew right where we were: George Baitinger, Elliot Aronin, Sandra Larsen and birthday-boy-leader Michael Landes.
