Larison Creek and Larison Rock

June 27, 1982

The trip was planned for the Metolius River Trail. Probably a forecast of rain caused 6 cancellations with only 5 sign-ups showing at 7:30 a.m. The small group did not warrant taking two cars needed for a shuttle, on the long drive to Camp Sherman. Instead, we chose to hike Larison Creek, starting at 9:00 a.m. The trail was clear at the beginning but soon entailed considerable bending and pulling out branches and sticks. At 3 miles and 2½ hours, trail fairly disappeared under more and more blowdown so we turned about and at 12:30 sighted a place by the creek for needed rest and lunch. Also sighted some in these neck of the woods seldom seen creatures&mdsash;3 llamas; a party was nearby getting ready to pack out. After reaching our cars at 2:00 p.m. we proceeded on to Larison Rock trail and a beautiful hike to the top with a bird’s eye view. Hikers and trail crew were Paul Bonsack, Bernice Claypool, Susan Conway, Shirley Froyd and leader Paula Vehrs.
