Rebel Rock Loop

June 24, 2000

The great “Rebel Rock Death March” again lived up to its reputation of being one of the most popular Obsidian hikes of the year (oops, wrong word: should read “unpopular”!). Four courageous folks signed up for this very beautiful hike, and one person showed up. After wasting 20 minutes waiting for “no shows”, we took off for what turned out to be one super day. [How difficult is it to call and cancel?] We had problems with many blow downs, but nevertheless “Fast Van” made the first five miles in about 1 hr. 35 min. I clocked a respectable 2 hrs. 10 min. Still more blow down for a couple of miles, then cross country to the base of Rebel Rock. What a fabulous viewpoint for our lunch break. More cross country to the top of Rebel Mountain, then a lot more down the ridge to regain the trail. A stop was made at the Rebel Rock lookout (so sad to see it slowly disintegrating). Finally, the thrilling last fourplus miles of quad building downhill to our much appreciated car. Perfect hiking weather, great hike, great hiking companion: all the elements that keep me leading this yearly odyssey. Hikers were “Fast Van” (Van Likes) and Ed Lovegren, leader.
