Lowder Mountain

Wednesday, September 3, 2014
Leader: Janet Jacobsen
Hike: 5.6 miles, 900 ft (Moderate)

We celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act with a wilderness hike to view Ruth and Karl lakes, named after Karl and Ruth Onthank, who were the "initiators and early spirit of the Friends of the Three Sisters Wilderness organization." They were also Obsidians. Mike Smith said, "it was of the best views of the Cascade Mountains from Mt. Hood to the Three Sisters." Back at the cars, we celebrated with apple crisp.

Members: Jacobsen, Janet, Cooper, David, Predeek, Dave, Wolf, Michael, Smith, Mike, Johnson, Steven. Nonmembers: Krakauer, Debbie.
