Ray Benson circumnavigation

February 10, 2007

The trip started at Albertson’s at 57th & Main in Springfield. We drove to the Ray Benson North Loop parking lot, and set out for the Circle Lake cutoff. From there we continued to the Island Shelter, which had been totally demolished and rebuilt since I was last there. We had lunch there and headed out for the South Loop, which we took down to the South Shelter, but found that it had been demolished and replaced with another shelter at a different location. At this point we lost the blue diamonds and just headed southwest to find it. After skiing some distance we found the South Loop and took it back to the parking lot. It was a good long ski and we left the parking lot about 3:00 p.m. for Albertson’s. I was home by 5:00 p.m.

Skiers were: Bob Huntley, Jesse Rapp, Sue Wolling and Bill Johnson, leader.
