Vivian Lake

September 24, 2005

On a cool September eight hikers embarked to Vivian Lake via Highway 58 to Oakridge. Just east of town we took the turn off to Hills Creek Dam and proceeded on Road 23 for about twenty miles to the trail head. Upon arrival we were greeted by a fabulous view of Diamond Peak that had just been covered with a skiff of new fallen snow, the first of the season. The trail proceeded up a gradual grade, passing Notch Lake, and approximately three miles from the trail head reached the top of the ridge. From there it was about a mile down hill to Vivian Lake, where we had lunch. After a short break we proceeded back to the trail head by the way we came. This route is not the usual way the Obsidians hike to Vivian Lake, it is not as steep as the Salt Creek trail and not as scenic, but it makes for an excellent hike. Participants were Marcia Cutler, Walt Dolliver (leader), Stewart Hoeg, Carol Houde, Sam Houston, Becky Lipton, Chris Lloyd (non-member) and Bob Moffitt.
