April 29, 1990
There was beautiful spring weather for the seven hikers who challenged themselves to climb
Hardesty Mountain April 29.
After the 3-hour ascent we started our lunch in a brief snow shower at the top.
It cleared up nicely after that and we chatted and then took a side trip along the cut-off
trail near the top.
We had a pleasant walk down the hill with just a small amount of rain.
I had estimated the trip to be around 10 miles, but after looking at a map I found we had walked
about 13 miles!!
The hardy hikers were Marie Baldwin, Steve Dawes, Ben Elkus, Marty Hathaway, Gary Marx, Nancy Ridings
and Suzanne Steussy (leader).
