September 18-19, 1999
The group camped at Diamond Lake Campground.
It was a warm, pleasant and restful night. We got an early start (around 5:00 a.m.).
As we were getting geared up on the parking lot a caravan of headlights appeared on the highway,
headed in our direction.
A large group of Mazamas had the same plan we did.
So we took off at a very fast clip — the Boy Scouts leading the way.
We kept our distance from the other climbers, and were the first to reach the summit.
Everybody made it to the top safely.
After a warm hike out, some of us stopped at Diamond Lake for a quick swim.
It was a great day for Karl Kriegh, Doug Nelson, Cathy Fairbanks, Dave Euston, Doug McCarty, Wes Clay,
Matt Spilde, Dan Hagen, Bob Burnett, Patrice Dirksen and leader Deb Carver.
