Olallie Mountain

June 26, 1993

The road sign at the trail head is brand new and no longer announces the trail head as Olallie Mountain Trail but as Pat’s Saddle. That was kind of spooky to this inexperienced leader who for a minute or two thought he was going crazy. The weather was just about perfect: bright sun, temperature about 70 degrees. The Forest Service had recently cleared the lower part of the trail of fallen trees and except for minor runoff and a few remaining snow patches, the whole trail was in excellent shape. Views of the Three Sisters and many other high peaks were there to see, not only on top but also along the way. Wild flowers were in abundance. We spent about an hour at the summit eating lunch, soaking up the sun and enjoying the view and the conversation. Kevin Clark and Dick Hildreth took an unexpected detour to the Olallie Guard Station when they wandered off the trail on the way down and then made a wrong turn. However, they found us before anyone realized they were gone and we were all on our way home shortly after 3:30 pm. A great day for great hikers who included Kevin Clark, Teresa Ferrer, Dick Hildreth, Helen Liguori, Gary Marx, Ed & Elly Meservey, Kathy & Parker Riddle, Velma Shirk and leader Walt Davis.
