Pine Lakes Backpack (August 2-4). For the sixteenth annual joint backpack I have led for the Salem and Eugene outdoor clubs, we trekked through the forgotten SE corner of the Wallowas, looping from Summit Point to the eerily turquoise Pine Lakes, to the ghost mining town of Cornucopia. A side trip on Saturday took us to Oregon’s other Crater Lake, an alpine pool reflecting Krag Peak. I think I got the cover photo for the next edition of my Eastern Oregon hiking guide, and I think everyone was tired but happy when we got to Cornucopia and I gave them a free book. Leader Bill Sullivan (Obsidian and Chemeketan) hiked with his wife, Janell Sorensen (guest), Linda Parker (Chemeketan), Marissa Catlin (guest), Scott Hovis (Obsidian), Anne Ashford (Chemeketan),Neal Allbee (guest), Lisa Grissell (Obsidian), Mathieu Federspiel (Chemeketan), and Natalie Hettle (a new Chemeketan).Members: Bill Sullivan, Lisa Grissell, Scott Hovis. Nonmembers: Janell Sorensen, Anne Ashford, Neal Allbee, Linda Parker, Marissa Catlin, Mathieu Federspiel, Natalie Hettle.
