July 10, 1988
The Belknap Craters, big and little, were the destination for the hike.
It was a lovely day with enough cool breeze to keep from too much heat.
The rocky trail to Little Belknap on the Pacific Crest Trail was as expected.
The short hike to the crater from the PCT is on good trail as well.
The hike to the big crater is somewhat more difficult and done by just going up the side.
There would be less damage to the flowers if a trail were in place and probably a lot easier going up.
The view from the top both into the crater and surrounding mountains is spectacular.
Hikers included Barbara Chinn, Linn Crooks, Barb Elsen, Rachele Fiszman, Bob Foster, Shirley Froyd,
Maxine Hall, Marty Hathaway, Carolyn and Dean Kortge, Janet Leavitt, Ken Raymen, Henrietta Richmond,
Ardys Ringsdorf, Amy Rubin and leader Mary Ellen West.
