Maiden Peak

October 3, 1976

Six of us set out at 7:30 a.m. in spite of the threatening weather. We started promptly up the trail at 9:00 a.m. expecting lots of rain. However, the cool, moist, cloudy day was just great for hiking up to the top (7,313 ft.). Just below the summit we ate lunch at a sheltered spot because it was too cold and windy at the top. Ice was forming on the trees—it was beautiful—but we were cold. So after a quick trip up and a look at the crater (with snow in it), we started back at 2:00 p.m. On the way down we had a chance to collect and admire the many kinds of mushrooms scattered all along the trail. Back at the cars by 5:00 p.m., a stop along the way, and home by 7:30 p.m. Mushrooming along were Chuck Berkey, Wilbur Groner, Joe Lowry, John Lundquist, plus Merle Traudt and Dorothy Leland, leader.
