April 13, 1974
There were 23 hikers participating in this leisurely hike along BLM and IPC
(Bureau of Land Management and International Paper Co.) logging roads.
It was a beautiful spring day, although a haze in the distance kept view of the
Cascades to a minimum.
We had lunch on the top of Stony Point, where there used to be a lookout.
Now there is much Scotch Broom.
Observed along the way were a few wildflowers; lots of buds ready to burst open,
chickadees, juncos, turkey vultures riding the warm air currents, drumming grouse
and various mosses, lichen and fungi.
Those hiking from Timber Ridge to Stony Point and back were:
Man Wai Lau,
Don Payne and family,
and last but not least
Clara Emlen, the leader.
