The Twins

July 14, 2007

Under a beautiful summer morning sky, five Obsidians and two non-members drove to The Twins trailhead. The trail was in great condition and hiking pleasant, except for the mosquitos in the first 1½ miles. Once beyond the junction with the Pacific Crest Trail, we climbed past a few tarns and shrinking patches of snow. The lava rubble slopes approaching the north peak were covered with wild flowers and migrating butterflys. After a stop to view Waldo Lake, the Sisters and Mt. Jefferson, the party crossed the saddle to the south peak for lunch. All agreed that the view from Mt. Jefferson to Mt. Thielsen was worth the hike. After comparing notes, it turned out that this was the first trip to The Twins for all, except for Glen. Members were Zella Andreski, Mary Hamilton, Debbie Hibbard, Bob Huntley and Glen Svendsen, trip leader. Non-members were Kurt Koivu, completing his third hike, and Karen Rayle, passing through from China on her way to Portland.
