Clear Lake

June 2, 2007

After three cancellations and a no-show, a small group of four headed for the eastern end of the McKenzie River Trail. From the parking area we followed the dry bed of the Fish Lake Creek to Clear Lake. On our right we admired the trees of the Fish Lake Old Growth Grove. We started the loop around Clear Lake clockwise in order to walk through the lava flows before the weather became too hot. From the start we had been wondering whether the lodge would open (we had ice cream bars on our minds). It was open and doing good business. We stopped for lunch close by in a shady spot as it was getting very warm. As usual the lake was spectacular and lots of people were enjoying it. Along the trail we noticed blooming bunchberries, beargrass, Oregon grape, wild irises and other flowers we could not identify. We enjoyed each other’s company and conversation but were happy to get back to an air conditioned car!

Hikers were: Daniele Delaby (leader), Barbara Schomaker, Michelle Tambellini and Mel Zavodsky.
