Clear Lake

August 9, 2006

The hike that I was scheduled to lead was to have been to Patjens Lakes. I previewed the hike the week before and found it be be extremely dusty, with poor views, and lots of noise from the jet skis at nearby Big Lake. After talking to Margaret Prentice and calling all the people who had signed up, I changed the hike to Clear Lake. There were eight participants and one of them had just moved to Eugene and had never seen Clear Lake. It was a very pleasant day and we hiked around the lake counter-clock-wise so we could get through the lava in the cooler morning. The views were stunning and already a few of the maple trees were beginning to change colors. The forest service has put together a little guide pointing out areas of special interest so we had “story hour” as we went. This was a very delightful group of people and we enjoyed showing off this very pretty area to a new-comer.
