Cerro Gordo

April 28, 1984

The hike started at the leader’s log home and went up the BLM gravel road about three miles to the upper area where there is a fine view of the lake and valley and surrounding hills. We sat down there for lunch and we were lucky to be there on goose fly-by day. We saw two flights winging northward—a springtime thrill. (Earlier in the day I had seen three other flights and hoped for more.) From lunch (where we also saw a couple of deer having their lunch below) we took off cross-country and came down a hillside and down through an old apple orchard dating from the early part of the century. We explored the old homestead area and graveyard where two adults and four children are buried. Right near there we came upon some morel mushrooms to our delight. We visited a yurt, barn and garden of Cerro Gordo not now in use, then came back to the log home for tea and juice. Hikers were Susan Baker, Kathy Blacketter, Eileen Montgomery, Colleen and Lauretta DeForge, Marcie Danab, Ruth Coffman, Jerry and Phyllis Northcutt, and leader Shirley Froyd.
