Adams Mountain

September 26, 1982

What otherwise could have been a spectacular hike was literally dampened by the weather-rain; lots of it, and all day. As a result, 14 enthusiastic hikers braved the very steep and rough Sharps Creek Road drive to arrive at the trailhead convinced that the predicted “showers” would pass—one hiker even braved bringing shorts in her pack; a true optimist! The clouds teased us occasionally by lifting somewhat to prove that vistas are plentiful in this country, but views were limited. Everywhere one looked the vine maples were resplendent red and yellow colors signaling that autumn has truly arrived in the high country. Historic and contemporary gold mines were seen along the route and the hikers traveled along the historic Knott trail to our appointed destination. As our soggy and cold group ate lunch in a wooded area at the base of Adams Mountain, we decided that the weather was the winner and we turned ourselves homeward. The greatest part of the hike was sharing the experience with the group, consisting of Bob Foster, Jenny Gnose, Dot Leland, Fred and Jean Richardson, Henrietta Richmond, Velma Shirk, Robin Steussy, Suzanne Steussy, Gene Thaxton, Doris and Merle Traudt, Paula Vehrs, and leader Fran Gnose.
