March 30-31, 1974
There was sunshine at Kah-Nee-Tah. Some went swimming, some horseback riding and some hiked. Wild flowers were identified by Mary-Douglass Stovall; common names were yellow Bells, Foot-steps of Spring sometimes called Ragged Stars flower, even the rare Apache Rose, found only on the Reservation (Apache thornes here and Apache thornes there). Added to interest Ewart Baldwin explained geological background of Cove Pallisades, besides other places enroute. Everyone enjoyed the very delicious and beautiful buffet dinner served at the Lodge.
Our route was I-5, Mt. Hood Loop, south on Wapinitia Pass to Warm Springs Indian Reservation and Kah-Nee-Tah Village. There were tunnels of snow at Government Camp where there was Wild Huckleberry pie for us at Huckleberry Inn.
