Diamond Lake - Crater Lake

Friday–Saturday, August 26–27, 2011
Leader: Rob Castleberry
Hike: (Moderate)

Fourteen participated in this multi-day trip. We car-camped at Diamond Lake's Broken Arrow Campground, using it as a base camp for excursions in different directions over a three day weekend. On Friday Rob led 13 of us on a hike to the top of Tipsoo Peak for a sweeping view of the lake, surrounding peaks, and beyond. After a potluck on the lake shore, Janet led eight of us to Crater Lake and a short hike to The Watchman lookout for a lovely sunset. On Saturday John led a group of six to the top of Mount Bailey under perfect conditions, breaking the curse of two previous Obsidian outings turned back by weather. Janet led eight to hike up Mt. Scott, visit the Pinnacles, and hike the new trail to Plaikni Falls. On Sunday Jim led a walk to Boundary Springs, source of the Rogue River, and three of us walked the Silent Creek trail west of the campground. Weather cooperated, mosquitoes were few in most areas, and the campground satisfactory. The many attractions to choose from make this a trip to be repeated in the future.

Members: Rob Castleberry, Marianne Camp, Jim Whitfield, Nola Nelson, Nancy Whitfield, John Jacobsen, Janet Jacobsen, Laurie Marshall, Peggy Windle, Keiko Bryan, Eric Swegles, Valerie Metcalfe. Nonmembers: Lisa Berenschot, Tom Etges.
