Rebel Rock Loop
June 26, 1999
Another great loop trip: Mild weather and a great group.
However, the “no show” rate was over 50%.
The remaining “lucky ones” all had a great time [!?]
That may be pushing reality, but we all made the famous (infamous?) loop to any event.
Surprisingly, we didn't hit snow until the 5-mile junction.
For about two miles we had deep snow, but it posed no problems.
The good news was that the cross-country section, including the Rebel Rock area, was all snow-free.
Heavy snow at the base of Rebel would have rendered that section
“difficult” to “no go”
And, finally, the last four miles are still downhill all the way.
Hikers were: Becky Hansen, Peggy Lee Mathes, Bennette Rauch and Ed Lovegren, leader.
