THOSE EVERLOVIN' TRIPS TO COME

July 22 - HUCKLEBERRY LAKE & THE ISLAND-- a qualifying trip - Phil. Brogan, of Bend Bulletin fame, will direct us to the site of one of Oregon's most unusual geological formations, with the help of Bette Hack. We will meet Bette at the City Park at 8 A.M. and drive from there to West Lava Camp. There is water on the trail, but you may want to take your canteen along. We will see a frozen cataract of lava, several hundred feet long, and will be able to observe and trace the Little Belknap and Yapoah Crater flows. There will be also a very fine view of the summit lavas. The hike is 8 miles round trip and - oh yes, it's all downhill!

July 29 - CARPENTER MT. - - a long time since our last visit - another qualifying trip led by Frank Sipe.
