August 6, 1978

A small but enthusiastic group struck out for Tidbits Sunday morning at 8:05. One of the largest draw backs to this particular trip is the nine or ten miles of winding, gavel logging roads you follow to the trailhead. Once you start on the trail you’re under beautiful and majestic Oregon timber for the first 1½ miles. The last half mile, you cross some rock slides and follow a number of switchbacks until you arrive on top. Tidbits was the previous site of a lookout and about all that remains is the cement foundation and wooden railing leading to the top. The many huckleberries that we ate on the way up and an old shelter in need of drastic repair were part of the points of interest on the way up. The view of the Cascade range is one of the most beautiful reasons for taking this hike. Due to haze in the air we could see only as far north as Mt. Hood and south to Diamond. On better days you can see into Washington and south to Thielsen. All in all it is still a breath-taking view enjoyed by all those who participated: Marie Bloom, Wilbur Groner, Bob Walden, Elizabeth McMullen, Joyce Mitchell, & leaders Cindy, Lori & Mike Wright.
