Adams, Knott, Crawfish
November 11, 1989
What a beautiful day! Could not ask for a better one.
We arrived at Mt. Adams Trailhead at 9:10.
This is a hard trail, but well worth the effort because of all the old growth, rhodies, etc.
At one point one can see nine of the major peaks. There are only two roads to cross.
All the clear-cuts are filling in fast. We see signs of bear, not too old; would like to see one!
We arrive at the top of Crawfish at 1:45.
Bob, Chris and I pass over to Mt. Adams, while the others take advantage of the sun.
This is an old lookout, long since destroyed, for Fairview now overlooks it.
Because of the clouds in the valley, we are unable to see Spencer Butte, but can see some of the
other peaks — June, Hardesty and Patterson.
We turn back, and pick up the sunning hikers and descend Crawfish.
This trail is also one that crosses two roads and a large clear-cut before reaching the trailhead.
We arrived back at the cars at 5:00.
Hikers were Bob Foster, Mary Hill, Ray Mikesell, Dean Scovill, Chris Steele, Eleanor Wilkerson
and Rebecca Hansen (leader).
