Browder Ridge

September 19, 1993

On a very cool and windy Sunday morning, nine of us gathered for the 85-mile drive to Browder Ridge. We reached the trailhead uneventfully. As the group headed up the trail, I opened the Forest Service registration book: there was a prominent warning that three hikers the day before could not reach the final ridge because a bear was defending it! The hike up was 4.2 miles and 2400' elevation gain. Clouds from a cold front obscured the usual spectacular views of the Three Sisters and Mt. Washington. We very gingerly went up the last ridge. But no bear … only the huckleberries he probably was eating. Bear hunters included non-members Andrew Brtis, Leon Dannen, Ed & Ellie Meservey and Sally Quiqley, and Obsidians Sig Otto, Hank Plant and leaders Chuck & Sandy Reul.
