Midnight Lake

February 18, 2008

Obsidians Mary Hamilton, Carol Petty and Glen Svendsen enjoyed a trip to Midnight Lake on a relatively warm, sunny President’s Day. We left the Gold Lake Snow Park about 10:00, heading to Pengra Pass. Although the plan was to ski up the Pacific Crest Trail, the icy, rutted condition of the PCT in the shade of the trees persuaded the group to take the shortcut back to the Bechtel trail. We also found that the “winter” trail between Bechtel and Midnight Lake went by a frozen pond that is a little off the usual trail, causing Glen some momentary confusion over which was the “real” pond near the junction of the PCT and Midnight Lake trail! After a lunch overlooking Midnight Lake, using the remains of an igloo for a lunchroom, the group had some fun runs down the trail, arriving back at the Snow Park about 2:30.
