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
