April 19, 1995
Even though I assured Marc there would not be snow, there was snow!
The trees were beautiful and the top part of the trail had about half-an-inch of snow.
We started at the saddle and the first part of the trail has salal and Oregon grape that needs to
be trimmed back; otherwise it is an excellent trail.
No rain, but the clouds and fog obscured the wonderful view of the mountains.
Obsidian hikers Marc Hansen, John & Lenore McManigal had never been on Castle Rock,
so trip leader Catherine Jones encouraged them to go back again on a clear day.
