Obsidian Trail - Arrowhead Lake

Saturday, September 24, 2011
Leader: Bob Harrison
Hike: 12 miles, 2100 ft (Difficult)

A group of six (6) Obsidians left from Campbell Senior Center at 7:15 a.m. on a clear morning for a hike to "Arrowhead Lake" via the Obsidian Trail. The weather was perfect with clear skies, warm temperature, no mosquitoes, so we were all in good spirits. In the discussions along the way it became evident that the leader's idea of which lake is Arrowhead Lake was different than some other members of the group. It was decided to go to the leader's "Arrowhead Lake" which was about 600 ft above the PCT and the lakes Bill Sullivan calls "Arrowhead Lakes." We followed the trail along Glacier Creek until we reached the PCT and then we followed climbers' trails around the bluff and passed the snow covered slopes to get to the top. We reached the lake before noon and had a leisurely lunch, did some exploring, took photographs and started the return a little after 1:00 p.m. The return trip was uneventful except for a missing hat that was soon recovered and a few raindrops when we reached the cars.

Members: Bob Harrison, Chris Stockdale, Ernst Schwintzer, Paul Flashenberg, Frank Chemotti, Sarah Praskievicz.
