Crescent Mountain

July 7, 1979

Crescent Mtn. has not been scheduled by the Obsidians during the past few years so it was new to most of the people on the trip. Thirteen hikers were delighted with the trail and with all that was visible therefrom. Several hikers commented on the variety of the trail: We descended through Douglas fir forest to follow within earshot or Maude Creek, finally crossing it. Then we climbed through forest and alpine meadows, past an old sheep camp, with views of Washington and the Three Sisters. Finally, from the top, once the location of a fire lookout, the whole panorama of the mid-Cascade Range was spread out.

At this time of the year the floral offering ranged from early spring to late spring and summer varieties, and from shade-lovers to open meadow or rocky cliff dwellers.

Weather conditions contributed to our comfort and enjoyment. Some clouds kept the temperature reasonable cool, and sunshine made 1-2 hours spent on top a pleasure. The hikers were Judy Carmody, Ron Crasilneck, Mary Ellen de la Pena, Bill Eimstad, Bob Foster, Sharon Fraley, Ruth & Wayne Lill, Nancy Means, Ethel & Robin Steussy, Paula Vehrs, and leader Velma Shirk.
