French Pete

May 2, 1987

It was overcast and a little drizzly, but eight cheerful people drove to the French Pete trailhead and started up the trail. The French Pete Creek was especially appealing, running high from recent rains. Trail and bridges were in good repair. Many calypso orchids were seen, and dogwood, wild strawberries, and bleeding hearts were in bloom. A few trilliums were still holding on. We never got wet from the rain, but everyone was somewhat wet from condensation inside our rain gear. Most of the moisture was received from the dripping of the trees. Lunch was enjoyed at the second crossing of French Pete Creek, and then the group started back. The trip was a little abbreviated because of the drizzle — which of course had stopped by the time the group had returned to the trailhead — making more time to enjoy pie at the usual on-the-way-home stop. “French Peter’s” were Glen Aplin, Mary Christoferson, Richard Dewey, Loretta Mason, Dewey Porter, Barbara Spencer, Jane Tucker, and leader Bonnie Ledford.
