VOLUME X EUGENE, OREGON - JUNE 1950 NO. 6
1950 OBSIDIAN SUMMER OUTING IN THE GRAND TETONS
August 6 to 20
Summer camp in the Grand Tetons from August 6th to 20th, camped at String Lake, is a dream that the Club has had for a long time.
Because of the distance, one can leave his car at home and take this grand opportunity to attend this ideal camp by traveling in a Special Deluxe Greyhound bus.
Camping on a lake shore is not new to Obsidians - that will be the swimmers' and fishermen's delight. And the view of those Grand Tetons towering upwards some 13,000 feet and the meadows with their bright colored flowers -- will be the photographers delight.
The food will again be under the supervision of Edna Temple, who will maintain the high standard of Obsidian Camp meals. And with Roy Temple to oversee the camp and its erection, what more could be asked.
In John. King, member of the committee, we have a man who has lived among these mountains and climbed them. He will be a valuable member of the camp.
Clarence Bankhead, our Greyhound driver, and member of the club, says we can leave Eugene at five on the morning of the 6th of August and travel to Ontario, Oregon--stay there Sunday night and then drive the remaining distance to the park on Monday.
The club furnishes some tents but it is suggested that members who have tents bring them and include them in their dunnage. Bring a warm sleeping bag. Nights are cold, so bring an extra blanket. Air mattresses are necessary these days.
The following are indispensable:
1. A good bed.
2. Heavy hiking shoes, not necessarily high, but preferably hobbed.
3. Heavy wool socks. Colored glasses.
5. Suitable hiking clothes.
6. Small first aid kit.
