Black Meadow/South Waldo Lake

September 8, 2002

The sun didn’t break through on our walk until the afternoon. The air was crisp & cool, perfect for hiking. On the 1st leg of our walk we discovered the roof was off the S. Waldo Shelter. With a cord of wood inside surely it will be replaced before it snows. Some work had been done to elevate nearby trails. The huckleberries were plump. I noticed a lot of purple fingers. There were a few mosquitoes, but not bad. Black Meadow & Bingo Lake was peaceful & quite. We saw no one else on this part of the trail. it was suggested by a nurse who went on our hike to carry a nitroglycerin spray in our 1st aid kit. It is used to open the main arteries to the heart. My thanks to a great bunch of veteran hikers — Leila Bull, Wendy Clarke, Benton Elliott, Steve Knight, Carolyn Kompanik, Karen Myers, Peter Rodda, Vincenza Scarpaci Chris Stockdale, Mel Zavodsky and J. Scott Hovis, leader.
