Hardesty Mt. to Mt. June

December 9, 1979

Eight Obsidians assembled for an early start on this Hardesty Mt. (4,279 ft.) to Mt. June (4,616 ft.) trip in mediocre but typical winter weather. Leaving the cars at the far end of Crale Creek Road and literally buzzing up on the summit, the party had a brief snack stop at the old Hardesty Look Out site. The Three Sisters appeared to be floating on a thick sea of fog, the only identifiable peaks in view. Small patches of snow were in evidence and surprisingly, this was the only such encountered during the entire trip. The trail was then followed along Sawtooth Ridge, and while this may not be the best-known or most rugged of Sawtooth Ridges in the Northwest, it is of such undulating quality along its entire length as to make for interesting hiking!

Threatening weather having developed, our lunch stop at windswept Mt. June Look Out site was hurriedly taken in sheltering trees, before retracing our way along the Ridge and on down to the cars.

Partaking of this brisk and sometimes strenuous walk were: Joanne Haines, Lee Hatch, Wilbur Groner, K. C. Kraft, Betty Legris, David Predeek, Henrietta Richmond, and John Cecil (leader).
