Nebo Mountain, Wendling

July 9, 1978

Eight “long-distance” trekkers met out through Georgia-Pacific’s Wendling tree farm, destination distant Nebo Mountain. Weather was not perfect, but overcast most of the day. Logging roads wind on for mile after mile. A surprised elk was spotted early in the day; later a deer; at the summit during lunch three rabbits (or one rabbit three times?). Mainly good views of G-P’s extensive lands from the vantage point of Nebo geological L.O. (3,407 ft.) rewarded our long walk. Wild flowers abounded . . . a large patch of highly-scented Washington Lilies “stole the show.” Wild berries were sampled along the way. A short side hike to another of Nebo’s several summits rewarded us by the sight of an exquisitely crafted “one-holer” that somehow survived when the old Booth Kelly fire L.O. was razed. In spite of the distance hiked, blisters were virtually non-existent. Good spirits prevailed all day. The very convivial 20-mile group consisted of Mary Bridgeman, Emmy Dale, Helene & Tom Johnston, Ted Stern, Paul (USAF), Pete & leader John Cecil.
