Castle Rock

July 13, 1975

We assembled at the 19th and Patterson parking area and left just after 8 a.m. Nine people in two cars. The weather was a little hazy to start with but turned clear and warm the farther up river we went. Arrived at the trailhead around ten, saw a young doe deer first thing, watched her for a bit and then went to the trailhead and “Booted up”. After getting acquainted and taking care of other preliminaries we started up trail.

The weather was clear, not a cloud in sight, beautiful morning with a good group. We saw lots of flowers along the way, which either Dorothy Leland or Clarence Landes or both identified for the rest of us. I have trouble with flowers, I’m not sure of their color even at times, so I leave flowers to the experts. We walked pretty steady keeping a good pace, arrived on top at 12:40, which was making good time. The day was beautiful, clear as could be, no haze, the “Sisters” were majestic. Everyone had lunch and looked through “glasses” or just sat and admired the scenery. Two other parties came up also while we were there. Finally we started back down the trail. Arrived back at the cars around 4:30 and headed back to Eugene.

On the trip were: Mark Anderson (12), Donna Gould, Chris Gould (12), Wilbur Groner, Margaret Hess, Clarence Landes, Dorothy Leland, Alex Ziel, and leader Merle Traudt.
