Tidbits Mountain

July 14, 1996

Our heat wave played tricks on some people. Out of nine sign-ups, six people canceled — probably because of the 100° forecast. But three additional people showed up, bringing our group size up to a comfortable seven, with ages ranging from six to 75 years. As it turned out, clouds prevented the sun from roasting us. Also, at nearly 5,000-ft. elevation, the temperature was very comfortable. The two-mile trail with 2,000-ft. elevation gain through a big tree forest with lots of wild flowers in bloom took us to the base of a 30-ft. rock pinnacle, which we scrambled up. At the top, the former site of a fire lookout, we had a commanding view of several snow-capped peaks. On the hike were Max Brown, Valdas Anelauskaite and his wife Rolanda and daughter Gabriella, Helmut Plant, Julian Peñaloza and leader Jean Ridone.
