June 9, 1991
On a beautiful Sunday morning, we traveled through the lush Mohawk Valley to Sweethome,
stopped at Cascadia Park, then proceeded to the Trout Creek trailhead, our destination
— Rooster Rock.
David Sweet (ex-Sierra Club hike leader) covered the uphill 3.3 miles in one hour, with Ben Jeffries
and Virginia Prouty about 10 minutes behind.
The trail was in good shape and we enjoyed the special flowers that were in bloom
— rhodies, wild iris, anemone, lady slippers, coral root and beargrass.
We made a quick trip down the trail and were back at the SEHS parking lot by 4:00 so that those who
were interested got to see the Bulls beat L.A.!
“Rooster Rockers” were Dan Bates, Genie Currier, Barb Elsen, Maggie Gontrum, Ben Jeffries,
Theresa Laterra, Virginia Prouty, Dave Sweet and Ardys Ringsdorf (leader).
