November 17, 1990
On a miserably cold and wet Saturday, four stalwart hikers (out of 14 sign-ups) showed up to
tackle “Pisgah the Hard Way.”
The 6½-mile trail, slickened by rain, slowed our progress considerably.
Our late lunch was hastily eaten while huddled under what little shelter a few leaf-bare trees
A canopy over Ken Kesey’s touching monument to his son would have kept us lingering longer
on the summit.
The true-blue Oregon Webfoots who pulled this one off with surprisingly cheerful dispositions were:
Mari Baldwin, Bob Dark, Jack Engstrom and Alys Riley.
The leader, who accepts full responsibility for picking such a lousy day, was Bob Devine.
