The weather for the first Obsidian snowshoe trip couldn't have been much better. There was almost 3 feet of snow at the measuring station. Though the day was overcast it barely snowed on us. Our group of 12 snowshoers set out from Gold Lake SnoPark set out and headed to Odell Overlook, stopping at Westview Shelter along the way. Then headed down to Midnight Lake. The size of our group was perfect to pass into the the Diamond Peak Wilderness area and head to Midnight Lake. After Midnight Lake we headed over to Bechtel Shelter and back to the parking lot. I would like to thank Jim Whitfield for volunteering to be the Sweep for the outing and making sure that we didn't leave anyone behind at the any of the many trail junctions.Members: Matthew Bell, Mari Baldwin, Darko Sojak, Charlie Van Deusen, Suzanne Steussy, Jim Whitfield, Nancy Whitfield, Stephanie Schilling, Donald Klinghammer. Nonmembers: Cindy Rust, Joyce Trawle, Douglas Berg.
