Clear Lake Loop
October 22, 2000
Patjens Lakes loop was the intended destination for this hike but snow had come to the area a couple of days earlier. Instead, our group of ten hiked the Clear Lake loop including a walk to the Santiam Wagon Road. It was a beautiful day: cold and clear. The big mountains were covered with snow and were visible from the west and north sides of Clear Lake. There were still some colorful leaves but the bright sun didn't hide the evidence of the coming winter. It was a spectacular scene on this day. Enjoying the hike were Susan Baker, Jerry Brindle, Joan Butler, Barbara Chinn, Peter Herring, Helen Liguori, Trinley Manang, Carolyn Miller, Barb Sutherland and Mary Ellen West, leader.
