We left the rendezvous point at Amazon Community Center promptly at 9:00 a.m. and arrived
at Eagles’ Rest Trailhead at 9:45 to begin hiking about 10 minutes later. We stopped for a
water break at Ash Swale Shelter, which has recently been rebuilt. The summit was reached at
about 11:15 and we had lunch while enjoying the limited views of Mt. June, Hardesty Mountain
and environs. Sheila spotted the golden eagle for which the mountain is named. Enjoying displays
of Pacific dogwood, yellow violet, calypso, oxalis and other wild flowers along the way were
Sheila Ward, Barbara Bruns, Joanne Ledet, Maggie Wells and Joe Scheibe (trip leader).
Many thanks to Barbara for driving and returning us to our rendezvous by 2:30.
