The day was clear and cool when the 11 hikers arrived at the parking
lot at North Waldo Lake Campground. We proceeded east along the north
shore of Waldo Lake, hiking through the area that had been burned by
the fire in the summer of 1996. After a rest at the lake’s outlet we
continued on Trail #3583. After the group arrived at the junction of
Trail #3692, which leads to the summit of Waldo Mountain, the group
continued on to the summit, while the leader stayed behind at the
junction to wait for a member who had fallen behind. After an hour
or so, the rest of the group returned from the summit and the whole
party retraced their path back along the north shore of Waldo Lake.
Hikers were: Page Houchens, Susan Baker, Maggie Gontrum, Brad Clements,
Mary Fechner, Wayne Westling, Valen Jones, Tom Ebert, Tim Shinabarger,
Brenda Hoppe and George Baitinger, leader.
