June 4, 1977
Nine of us left the parking lot at 8:45 and headed up the McKenzie to
Iron Mountain in a light rain and veil of clouds.
We hit the trail at 10:45.
The trail was in good condition, with a few patches of snow which should
be gone in a couple of weeks.
The old lookout blew over last year and the replacement was in good condition.
We ate lunch on top and then walked down, in step to the music of the Whooping Cranes.
Although the flowers weren’t out in bloom, they were just picking themselves
up after being freed from the heavy weight of the snow.
Although the clouds stopped us from seeing much in the way of views, it is interesting
to see and experience an area in many types of weather.
The faithful outdoorpersons who ventured out of their warm dry homes were:
Pete Cecil (substitute leader).
