Mt. Pisgah

April 4, 1981

We parked our cars at the Arboretum entrance and spent about an hour walking along the trails identifying the many wildflowers in bloom. They are so early this year—baby blue eyes, buttercups, delphinium, trillium, camas, iris and others.

It was a leisurely hike up to the top where we enjoyed the sunshine and the excellent views of the surrounding countryside with the Sisters and Diamond Peak in the distance. After lunch Merle took us crosscountry back down the mountain searching for old trails. As we came by the water garden pond, we spotted several dark shelled western box turtles warming their glistening black shells on the floating logs of the lily pond. Earlier in the morning we saw a super huge bullfrog on the same spot.

What a pleasant sunny day spent with warm, congenial hikers Barry Beck, Bob Gaesser, Anne Montgomery, Donna Schimmels, Doris and Merle Traudt, Elaine Yost, Paula Vehrs and leader Dot Leland.
