Duffy Lake

October 12, 2008

All bundled up in fleece mittens and hats, we started up the trail to find that the dusting of snow at the trailhead turned into a fully covered trail — but only an inch or so, so on we went. At the lake, the usually inviting lunch spot at south beach was passed by for the ridge on the south side of Duffy Butte. Here we found sunshine — not shade, fluffy vegetation — not wet sand and, best of all, a fine view of Three Fingered Jack to the east. Even though a high overcast rolled in and a bit of mysterious “Oregon mist” fell during our repast, it was hard to pack up and head down the trail to end this fine, clear and cold October day. No campers or horsemen seen — a single bare rectangle of earth and footsteps in the snow of a lone hiker were the only evidence that we weren't the discoverers of beautiful Duffy Lake — perhaps Duffy’s ghost revisited over the weekend.

Hikers were Deb Brewer, Wayne Cleall, Pat Esch, John Lorang, Lou Maenz, Beth Roy, Charles Wright and Barb Revere, leader
