Little Bunchgrass Meadow
December 19, 1981
We set off in a discouraging rain, but on our arrival at the Owl Cabin Way
trailhead, the heavens had closed.
We climbed 1,700 feet in ¾ mile, achieving Bunchgrass Ridge where we
found the snow deepening as we traversed to the meadow.
Little Bunchgrass Meadow was a Christmas card scene, where we lunched.
Selecting sub-alpine fir Christmas trees was a happy labor mixed with
skiing on the rolling slopes of the meadow.
Even with gravity on our side it was somewhat laborious hauling our
Christmas trees down.
We rewarded ourselves with a soak in McCredie Hot Springs.
Heather Anderson, Holly Chism, Michelle Cutrer and leader Jerold Williams made
Carol singing, accompanied by Heathens recorder enlivened the proceedings.
