Rosary Lakes

February 16, 2008

The saying goes that the early bird gets the worm. In this case the early Obsidians got the PCT to Rosary Lakes all to themselves on the way in, due to our early start. Being the first ones up the trail had the added benefit of allowing us to see that earlier that morning an elk had used the trail. We surmised that the elk used the trail because it didn’t post-hole with every step as it had in the snow leading to and from the trail. The first people we saw were a wayward snowboarder and skier from the ski area that came down to Upper Rosary Lake by mistake. On our way back to Willamette Pass we came across various groups of x-country skiers and snowshoers on their way up to the lakes. The weather was perfect, barely a cloud in the sky, affording us unobstructed views of Pulpit Rock and Maiden Peak. Since no snow had fallen recently the trail was pretty crusty which made for pretty easy going up to the lakes.

Participants were: Brad Bennett, Marianne Camp, Jim Floyd, Kathleen Floyd and Matthew Bell, leader.
