Rosary Lakes

Friday, September 23, 2011
Leader: Chris Cunningham
Hike: 7 miles, 800 ft (Moderate)

Well past mosquito season and hot summer weather, our five-some found a lot to be grateful for on this autumn day. Imagine our delight to find no cars in the parking lot! With just two hikers on the trail the entire day, this was not the Rosary Lakes I have become accustomed to. Cloudless skies kept Odell Lake an aquamarine backdrop, always in our sight, adding interest to what otherwise is a not terribly interesting trail. So much dead and dying timber covers these hillsides. We stopped to admire the craggy Pulpit Rock, which overlooks lower Rosary Lake. At lunch time, we sat just an arm’s length from the Middle Lake, then sauntered to the smaller upper lake before extending our hike up the trail a bit. We began our descent about 1 p.m., when we just began to feel the 75-degree weather.

Members: Chris Cunningham, Pete Peterson, Susan Sanazaro, Nancy Whitfield. Nonmembers: Lisa Romano.
