Eagles Rest

May 4, 1974

Leaving the three cars on gravel road 203 this group of 12 hiked along a logging road until it crosses the stream. Shortly thereafter we met Helen Smith and Mary Bridgeman clearing a new section of the trail. They had started at Ash Swale and worked downward, following the old telephone cable. The new trail is a joy to use. A short time was spent at the shelter to fix a loose shingle and observe the skunk cabbage and other wildflowers.

Eagles Rest was reached just about noon the weather was co-operating so there were nice views from the rocky outcrop. About an hour was spent eating lunch and relaxing in the sun. On the way down we again met Helen and Mary; they had made quite a bit of progress. We stopped again for a chat. We reached the cars about 3:15. (Some flowers observed were wood violet, angel slipper, spring queen, trillium, spring beauty, spring queen, manzanita, dogwood, sedum, paint brush). We had driven up from Rattlesnake Rd. and Lost Creek and came back via Goodman Creek side. Those participating in this leisurely hike were: Kenneth Adams, Ellen & Ross Bondurant, Michael Hawkins, Dianne Holmes, Sharlyn Jackson, Kathy Landwehrkamp, Laurel Moody, Bob Nordahl, Wesly Prouty, Paula Vehrs and Clara Emlen leader.
