June 3, 1981
The weather was good for hiking, a little hazy and cloudy for good viewing,
but the wild flowers were out in profusion.
We had lunch on top at 12:30 p.m.
The forest Service men were along for two reasons — Brad, who is our
recreation person from Lowell, was there because he is new to this area and
was taking this opportunity to get acquainted with a part of the Alpine Trail
and the Tire Mountain Trail.
The men from Oakridge were timber planners and along to show us a proposed
relocation site for a section of the Alpine Trail just past the junction with
the Tire Mountain Trail.
They were planning a timber cut which would border a section of the trail so
offered to build a new trail on the other side of the ridge.
It looked like a good idea and will give us another good view out along the trail.
Hikers were Mary Bridgeman, Emmy Dale, Wilbur Groner, K. C. Kraft,
Eleanor Wilkerson & leader Helen Smith.
Guests from Willamette National Forest were Brad Exton from Lowell Ranger Station,
Keith Murray, Walt Parker and Ron Boehm from Oakridge Ranger Station.
