April 21, 1990
We left Eugene at 10 a.m. under cloudy skies and began our hike shortly after 11 a.m.
All day long the sun and clouds took turns dominating the sky.
Noise from nearby Oakridge was moderate to absent along the various sections of trail.
The spring near the top was dry, and there was no snow whatsoever during the entire trip.
We reached the summit of Larison Rock (elevation approximately 3,700 ft.) shortly after 1 p.m.
and enjoyed a long, leisurely lunch break.
For the next hour and 40 minutes, the clouds periodically draped and then unveiled Mt. David Douglas
and Mt. Yoran to the east.
Diamond Peak remained enshrouded.
The wind was cool on top of Larison Rock, so when the clouds coming out of the west threatened to
rob us of warm sunlight, we decided to retreat back to our car.
We arrived back in Eugene around 6 p.m.
A really nice hike was had by Jackie Fern, Marty Hathaway, Ed Lovegren, Cathy Scissors,
Karin Thompson, and leader Michael Cooper.
