VOL. XVII JUNE 1957 - OBSIDIANS INC.- P.O. BOX 322 - EUGENE, OREGON NO. 6

THREE SISTERS WILDERNESS AREA TRIP

The Fourth of July is rapidly approaching and with it will come the annual Wilderness Trip sponsored by the Friends of the Three Sisters, Inc., - Obsidians cooperating - which this year goes into an area rarely visited with base camp at Lamb Butte, July 4-7. The approach will be by way of Castle Creek Way, a trail comparable in steepness and length to Rebel Rock Trail. Shaded by a fine forest right from the beginning at the end of the Horse Creek road, this trail should provide an excellent hike on a warm July day. From base camp a wide variety of trips are scheduled, including Taylor's Castle, Horsepasture Mt., English Mt., Olallie Mt., French Mt., The Potholes, Quaking Aspen Swamp, Wolverine Meadow, etc. Because dunnage will be packed, the trip is again easy for families of all ages. The packer will take dunnage in on Thursday, - persons who wish to make it a two-day trip over Saturday and Sunday may arrange to send their dunnage in with the packer on Thursday. Also an excellent one-day round trip of approximately 12 miles may be made to the area.

Information may be had from any member of the committee in charge, who are: Dale Carlson, Chairman, Margaret Markley (receiving reservations), Dr. Jim Kezer, Dave Burwell, Dr. Ruth Hopson, Fred Behm, Prince Helfrich, Frances Newsom, Ruth Onthank, Karl Onthank, Doris Sims -- all of whom are going.

Others who already have reservations, are: Dr. Sanford Tepfer, Al and Virginia Schmitz, Ruth Mills, Elvira Thomson, Jim and Mary Stovall, Gladys Bowen (Oregonian), Dr. Robert Storm, Ruth and Karl Onthank, Helen Weiser, Mac McWilliams, Bertha Deckmann, with more signing up daily.

Cost of the trip (4 days) is $9.50; this includes 30 lbs. of dunnage (20¢ per lb. for overweight). For adults not paying packer's fee, there will be a trip fee of $1.00.

Deadline date has been extended ... but reservations should be made immediately to assure packer services, with Margaret Markley, 1967 Adams St., Phone DI 4-0716.

All indications point to a successful trip with a fine group of enthusiastic participants.
