Iron Mtn

June 26, 1982

Because it rained all night, half the signup did not turn up. They missed a nice trip. Though it rained some on the way up the mountain, most of the time the trail was either overcast or sunny. A storm blew in just below the summit and lunch was wet, windy and a bit cold. Rain kept up most of the way down so we hurried back to our cars. Stopped at several other places to check — you guessed it — Penstemons. Spring was late this year (there was snow on the trail near the summit) and the flowers were in full bloom, a grand show. We found for the first time on the mountain (for us) Dicentra uniflora or steers head, related to bleeding heart. (Incidentally we have new plant lists for the mountain, revised with the aid of Dave Wagner of the University Herbarium.) Enjoying the rain and shine were Carol Babb, Bob Foster, Liza Franz, Gladys Grancorvitz, Keena Northrop, Jim Northrop, Fred Schepman, Sue Sluys, Meg Zimmerman, Robin and leader Ken Lodewick.
