Trinley Manang, Chuck Mitchell, Roy Nelson, Michele Tambellini, Grant Wiegart
and Clare Tucker (leader) made the hike up through the lava fields to view North Sister.
A snow bank lying along the northeast side of the lava field obstructed our path for a
short distance, but everyone made it down over the rough terrain without any scrapes
— no bandaids needed!
After a leisurely lunch we hiked on up through very loose pumice to the top of
Four-in-One Cone to catch a glimpse of Broken Top, Mt. Washington, Mt. Jefferson and
We all felt lucky to be out on a perfect day — no mosquitoes, warm but not hot,
and blue skies!
On the car trip back, some of us experienced the remarkable benefit of stopping for
ice cream as a way to get rid of “car stiffness”.
