Rob Scherer planned to lead this trip so that his wife, Terry, and
their twins, Sam and Emily could complete the membership requirements.
Sam was ill so Rob stayed home and I led the trip for Terry, Emily and
my husband, John. There was a consistent light rain for the entire
hike. Emily’s grandparents, Clarence and Dorothy Scherer (both
deceased), led the Clear Lake hike many times. It seemed fitting that
their grandchild and daughter-in-law completed their qualifying trip at
Clear Lake. When Emily said she would really like to eat lunch at the
Vida Café, the adults were in complete agreement. Emily celebrated with
a chocolate milk shake with sprinkles.
