October 8, 1995
This was one of those brisk autumn days when the winter storms seem imminent.
When we arrived at the trailhead, it was in the low 40s and we wasted little time getting going.
The brisk weather inspired a brisk pace and we were at the summit shortly after noon.
The views were mostly of storm clouds blowing in from the west, but we did get a quick glimpse
of Diamond Peak.
There were already patches of new snow near the summit, and it felt like it would be snowing
within the next few hours.
However, we managed to do the entire 11.6-mile hike without rain or snow.
Within minutes of getting in our cars, the rain did start.
I’m sure it was snowing at the summit!
Look forward to a good ski season!
Hikers were Buzz Blumm, Palmore Clarke, Dick Hildreth, Ian Ives, Andy McIver, Sam Miller, Karen Myers,
Ivan Vandenberg, Bob Vogel and leader Bill Montgomery.
