Midnight Lake

December 30, 2007

Yahoo, the snow is here. After a short discussion regarding weather reports, the crew of eleven left South Eugene High School under gray, cloudy 37 degree weather at about 8:10. Met at Dairy Queen in Oakridge to reevaluate the weather conditions looked okay and headed up. Snow was on the road at the train trestle but well packed and sanded. Arrived at Gold Lake Nordic area shortly after 10:15. Geared up and off we went! The snow was light, fluffy and deep! Sue Wolling took the task of rebreaking the trail up the road to the PCT trail with the sun flirting with an appearance. The strong legs of Sue, John, Chrissy, Charlie and Susan reached Midnight Lake for lunch and met the rest of us at the Midnight Lake junction. It was a pleasant downhill ride down the road back to the full parking lot. Kurt, frustrated with his skis, had his own adventure of digging out of fluffy, deep snow and opted to exercise his speed skiing skills. Smiles were all on the faces of: Charlie Van Deusen, Chrissy Anderson, Susan Wanser, Doug McCarty, Jana Rygas, Teal Grayhavens, Kurt Koivu, John Mahoney, Mary Ann Peterson, Sue Wolling and Laurie Funkhouser. Thanks for a great trip!
