Hardesty Mnt. to Mount June via Sawtooth
December 14, 1980
This long hike coincided almost with the shortest day of the
year . . . flashlights were indeed needed before it
Starting at the main trail head on Highway 58, the party was soon
strung out along its lower stretch (which has been recently worked on).
Knee-deep snow was encountered on the immediate approaches to Hardesty
Lookout site, and again on the last haul to the top of Mount June.
Betty, Margaret, Lee and John completed this vigorous, but very
satisfying 16-mile walk, visiting both lookouts; Wilbur elected to
lunch atop Sawtooth Rock; and other members of the group turned back at
various points along the trail.
Hikers were Brenda and Larry Christensen, Lee Hatch, Margaret Crosland,
Betty Legris, Wilbur Groner, Steve Peterson, and John Cecil, leader.
