Womens' Waldo Lake Kayak/Canoe
September 17-18, 2010
Six intrepid campers who took a chance on the iffy weather forecast
gathered Friday noon at Shadow Bay on the southeast side of Waldo Lake
and claimed three adjacent campsites in the loop closest to the lake. We
had an afternoon paddle along the shore under warm but cloudy skies.
Figuring it was going to rain sometime, we set up a canopy over one
picnic table, so were snug during the evening thunderstorm and warmed by
our fire as we ate our potluck dinner, sang songs, read stories and
played cards. It was rainy Saturday morning, so we elected to hike to
the shelter at the south end of the lake and on the way back, spotted
four otters. A lunch of yummy leftovers capped an interesting stay for
Obsidian members Keiko Bryan, Clara Emlen, Pat Esch, Joella Ewing, Helen
Martz and Patricia Soussan.
