South Waldo/High Divide

August 19, 2007

On a mid-December day that arrived in August, Obsidians Laurie Funkhouser, Kurt Koivu, Ellen Sather, and trip leader, Peter Asai enjoyed a cool and moist saunter through the southern end of the Waldo Lake Wilderness. The hike started at Shadow Bay boat launch and continued along the lake shore turning inland at South Waldo Shelter and gradually moving up to connect with the High Divide Trail. From there the trail travels down to Black Meadows. Lunch was enjoyed on a soggy downed log at the Meadows spread out at the base of Mt. Fuji. The trail passes Bingo Lake and returns to the South Waldo trail to lead back to Shadow Bay. The day was reminiscent of spring coastal weather with mottled gray skies and a soft steady drizzle that freshened and enlivened the lushness of stream beds, meadows and marshes passed on the nearly 10-mile loop hike. The redoubtable, water resistant spirits of the hikers made an uncharacteristic August day a delightful jaunt through woods, meadows and marshes.
