Duffy Lake

September 2, 2007

Three old friends, who have trod many a mile together, decided to forget the late cancelation (phone call at 6 a.m.) and the one “no-show” and enjoy this nice summer day. The parking lot was chock full with over 30 vehicles, but we only encountered about six people on the way in. Lakeside was a pleasant place for lunch, four others for company. After lunch, we hiked over to “Sherwood’s Saddle” to view Three Fingered Jack, but all our attention was on the smoke from the new “GW” fire, which billowed up on the SE horizon. We also discovered where all the campers were hiding at this very popular short backpack destination. The North Santiam River was a dry crossing. The day was bright and the trail was dusty and we stood off-trail for at least a dozen horses, all with riders of the cowpoke persuasion, “Thank ya, mam”.

Hikers were: Julie Dorland, Marshall Kandell and Barb Revere, leader.
