Triangulation Peak

September 14, 1996

We had five signed up for the hike, but two had canceled and we had one no-show, leaving only two of us. The weather was not the best. We had a shower on the way in, and a short rain later, but most of the time it was no more than a drizzle. Vegetation along the trail was damp. Apparently, it was a poor year in that area for huckleberries. The leader saw only one berry. Before noon, we were eating lunch at the site of the former fire lookout. Nearby clouds obscured our view. We proceeded down to the huge Boca Cave, which is always of interest even if one doesn’t have a view of Mt. Jefferson, framed by the high entrance to the cave. We returned to the car at 2:15, only 32/3 hours after leaving it. We were thankful we had our ponchos along for this hike. We had a very enjoyable hike, even if it was not as dry as desired. Hikers were non-member Nola Shurtleff and leader Norman Benton.
