Maxwell Butte

September 15, 2002

If Northwest hikers listened to the weather report, they might never leave the confines of their warm beds. The weather report for this trip was gloomy and appeared to be justified at the onset of the day. However, by the time our group — who live by the creed “the worst day outdoors is better than best day indoors” — reached the top of Maxwell Butte the sun and sky comprised to give us great conditions for our lunch break.

Surrounded by clear views of the Sisters, Mt. Washington, Three Fingered Jack, and Mt. Jefferson we enjoyed our repast in a pastoral setting (come on, it was a Sunday meal outdoors) before hiking back to the car. Upon arrival at the parking lot the group was awarded “The Cross of Contemplation” for maintaining near constant silence during the hike out. This fine group of speedy hikers consisted of Dan Bates, Jennifer Baer, Arlene Deyo, Bob Stephenson, Sergey Yuzvinsky, and Sam Miller (leader).
