VOLUME XII EUGENE, OREGON - FEBRUARY 1952 NO. 2
1952 OBSIDIAN SUMMER OUTING IN THE WALLOWAS August 3rd to 17th
HORSESHOE LAKE TO BE 1952 SUMMER CAMP SITE
Plan your vacation now, to attend the 24th annual Summer Outing of the Obsidians, in that grand vacation land of the Wallowa mountains in Northeastern Oregon.
AUGUST 3RD TO 17TH ARE THE DATES
The same campsite at beautiful Horseshoe Lake, as we had in 1936 and 1940, will again be the camping spot for the 1952 outing.
Horseshoe Lake is the first of seven beautiful lakes in the lake basin, which is but seven miles long and has Eagle Cap mirrored in Mirror Lake at one end and the ten thousand foot white granite Matterhorn at the other end. Both of these ten thousand foot mountains are easily reached from camp.
The Wallowas are reached by either of two routes -- to Portland, The Dalles, and to Pendleton -- or across the McKenzie Pass, through Redmond, Prineville, The Ochocos, John Day, Canyon City, Baker, La Grande, Elgin, Enterprise and Wallowa Lake. Either way is about 480 miles.
Cars are left at Wallowa Lake Lodge and the trail which can be taken by horseback leads up nine miles to Horseshoe Lake. Where everything is taken into camp by pack horse, one can hike into camp if they do not want to ride horseback.
As has been the custom of generally taking two days to reach camp, this is true of this years camp, but one-weekers will find it worth while to attend as well as two-weekers. There were one-weekers and two-weekers at both of the previous camps in the Wallowas. It is possible to come home in one day.
More will be written about camp at a later date and also a picture night is planned, but information can be had from any of the committee, who are: Dale Carlson, Ray Sims (4-9546) and Glen Sims (4-7087). PLAN NOW! And, Fishermen --- get your gear ready.
