Little Cowhorn Mountain

June 20, 2001

The first stop along the Fall Creek Road was to walk on the interesting one-mile Nature Trail through the woods at Clark Creek Junction. The next stop was a “bagel and cream cheese stop” while we viewed Gibraltar Rock, flowers and caught the first glimpse of our destination on the highest peak around. Next stop the trailhead. The trail climbs 1700 ft. in one mile . . . yes, it is steep! Hank led out and was at the lookout to greet each one of us as we arrived. He had already read interesting entries in the summit book. Melody and Wayne enjoyed especially the blooming rhododendrons and penstemons (cardwelli) as well as the huge volcanic rock columns as seen on the way up. Vi and your leader were thrilled that they could still make it to the top after a first visit each had made over 30 years ago! We all enjoyed a leisurely lunch on the deck of the lookout and the outstanding view of a circle of major peaks in all directions, from Mt. Hood to Diamond Peak, to the Sisters and back to Hood. Before leaving we signed the summit book. A memorable trip with Melody Clarkson, Wayne Deeter, Vi Johnson, Helmut Plant and Margaret Wiese, leader.
