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.
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.
