We were greeted at the trailhead by the sound of money being made: chain saws singing and
trees crashing down!
The trees along the trail to the summit of Mt. Fuji, as yet, remain unmolested by chain saws
although numerous trees have recently succumbed to the forces of the wind.
The day was sunny, no snow along the trail, still, a surprisingly cold breeze that kept the many
mosquitoes at bay.
Our hiking party — Ray Jensen, Carolyn Roth, Glen Gore, Erik Furehner, Mary Millman,
Elaine Yost, Kevin Clark, and leader Royal Murdock — enjoyed a breezy and
identifying the many lakes and peaks of the high Cascades.
