Horsepasture Mountain is a unique area with sub-Alpine meadows and rock outcrops intermingled
with Douglas fir and noble fir.
We parked at Horsepasture Saddle and took a leisurely walk up the trail.
Flowers were blooming everywhere. There were bluebells, yellow wood violets and trillium.
Dry rocky areas had purple larkspur and collinsia. There were still a few patches of snow left.
The views from on top of the mountain were superb.
A small contingent from the Native Plant Society of Oregon joined us, as well as three wildlife
biologists from the Forest Service, OSU and the BLM.
Enjoying the fine spring weather were Suzanne Baker, Mari Baldwin, Dan Bates, Julie Bien, Charlie Berg,
Blyth Carpenter, Melanie Clasen, Leona Devine, Merlin Hill, Jim Holm, Ray Jensen, Helen Liguori,
Gary Marx, Dale McBride, Sandra Poinsett, Marion Razowski, Charlene Simpson, Jean Skinner,
Rodger Voelker, guest biologists Cheryl Friessen, Jim ?-?, Tim Fox, and trip leader Dave Predeek.
