Rosary Lakes

January 20, 2008

After a week without fresh snow, I was regretting having offered to lead a trip to Rosary Lakes—the worst trail imaginable for icy conditions. But the day before the trip, the forecast changed dramatically. Perhaps it was the predictions of fresh snow that made the Obsidians on my sign-up sheet so flaky: 20 people were on the list at one time or another, and I arrived at SEHS expecting somewhere between 6 and 15 skiers. The 12 of us who showed up carpooled up to Willamette Pass for what turned out to be a beautiful day of skiing in powdery fresh snow that someone else had broken a trail through. Our climb up to the lakes was rewarded by a brisk slide back down through the forest that left most of the trees standing, even if the skiers were not.

Skiers were: Chrissy Anderson, Mari Baldwin, Bea Fontana, Ron Funke, David German, Brian Hamilton, Diane Jeffcott, Dave Jensen, John Mahoney, Carla Orcutt, Clare Tucker and Sue Wolling, leader.
