Grizzly Peak—Mt. Jefferson Wilderness

July 18, 1976

The leader and his daughter met twelve enthusiastic hikers from Eugene at the Pamelia Lake trailhead at the appointed time of 1:30 a.m. and proceeded at a leisurely pace into Pamelia Lake and on up the Grizzly Peak Trail. A high overcast soon dissipated into one of those clear, warm, delightful Oregon days. Quite a bit of winter timber fall was across the trail on the north slope requiring the use of additional muscles for either over or under, as the obstacle presented itself. Countering this was a scattering of pink rhododendrons in full bloom along the trail. The summit was reached about 1 p.m. where lunch and a rest in the sun was enjoyed. The view of Mt. Jefferson was breathtakingly clear and sharp. A party of climbers was watched through binoculars crossing the N.W. route snowfield to the red saddle. They were less than 3.5 air miles away and about one mile higher, but in time and calories, much much farther. All were back at the cars by 5 p.m. Hikers enjoying this day were Wilbur Groner, Lee Hatch, Wayne Hatch, Jane Johnson, John Johnson, Clarence Landes, Cindy Meares, Glenn Meares (leader), Doug Pierce, Parker Riddle, Lois Schreiner, Cindy Secrest, Helen Smith and Bob Walden.
