Maxwell Butte

September 12, 2010

It took two hours of hiking in the forest to reach the six switchbacks that opened up the panoramic views of the Three Sisters and Mt. Washington. Thirty minutes later we approached the top with a “front seat” view of Three Finger Jack and lake basin. Around the corner, there was Mt. Jefferson and Mt. Hood. We lingered on the rocky butte 1½ hours basking in the sun and identifying lakes and peaks. Chris Stockdale said, “It is the best view I’ve had all summer.” Jim Whitfield who is reactivating his membership said, “If I had know this view was here, I would have hiked up here years ago.” In the near future, he plans to cross-country to Berley Lakes. That sounds like a great car shuttle for an Obsidian hike. Also enjoying the view were members, Becky Lipton and Brad Bennett. Janet Jacobsen, leader.
