When this trip was canceled, I offered to lead it.
I wanted to be hiking when students went back to school.
We parked at the lodge and hiked counter clockwise around the lake.
It was a sunny day with crisp views of the lake.
Near the end of our hike, we met member, Carol Kompanik.
She signed up for our hike but canceled so that she could start hiking later in the day.
Our 8:00 departure from Eugene was a bit early for such a short hike.
By 12:00, we were back at the lodge where we ate our lunch by the lake.
Some of us took advantage of the homemade pies in the restaurant.
Since Denny and Jeanne Schmidt are new to the area, our car stopped at Belknap Lodge
to look around.
Next time I lead this trip, I am going to include an hour stop at
Belknap Springs to amble or swim.
We were back in plenty of time so that I could attend the board meeting.
Hikers were: Sue Anderson, Sue Archball, Robert Carlson, Joe Finch,
Marshall Kandall, Sandra Larsen, Colleen Milliman, Denny Schmidt, Jeane Schmidt,
Nola Shurtleff and Janet Jacobsen, leader.
