Midnight Lake Loop

February 10, 2007

After leaving a drizzly Eugene and driving through rain to get to Gold Lake Snow Park, our hardy party of four started for Midnight Lake in a light mist. We headed to Pengra Pass and the Pacific Crest Trail, playing leap frog with members of the Lane County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue team on a weekend drill. After about ½ hour, the mist turned to snow, and so the climb to Midnight Lake turned out to be very pretty, with large flakes drifting down through the trees. While watching the snow at Midnight Lake was very enjoyable, the consensus was that heading down to Bechtel shelter would be a better lunch spot. Janet, a soon-to-be Obsidian, started a fire while we settled down to eat lunch and warm up. As we finished lunch, the sun came out to make the ski down the main trail very quick and fun.

Skiers were: Laurie Funkhouser, Carol Petty, Janet Winter and Glen Svendsen, leader.
