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
Helene & Tom Johnston,
Pete & leader John Cecil.
