Gold Lake & Marilyn Lakes
February 24, 2002
We started out heading for Maklaks Loop then discovered, after just minutes on the snow/ice,
that we were not ambitious enough to risk our lives on a lousy trail.
So we packed my car back up and headed for Gold Lake where we'd seen a tiny bit of new snow.
We slid into Gold Lake, circumvented the lake a while then discussed how we each would like to get
back to the car.
Knowing what the Gold Lake trail was like, no one wanted to traverse it again.
So — three took the Waldo Road out and had a great downhill run,
while Bob and I took the more adventurous route via Marilyn Lakes.
Bob was able to learn and practice a variety of new ways to travel and fall on icy snow.
He is surely a better skier for having survived this part of the trip with nothing broken
except his pride.
It was a beautiful day and we were all glad we went skiing today, even Bob.
Skiers were Paul Jasheway, Beth Frye, Bob Huntley, Janet Hall,
and Diane Jeffcott (leader).
