Bright sunshine and balmy weather rewarded nineteen eager hikers turning out for this early
The trail mostly meandered by Larison Creek through forest and a mossy wonderland.
Max Brown set the pace for the 5.2 miles to the creek fork where we enjoyed a leisurely
lunch then returned the same way.
Sabine spotted trillium, colts foot, violets, blue-eyed Marys, snow queens, Oregon grape and more.
This was a totally pleasant hike and a fun group.

Jessie Oliver, Russ Roberts;
and thirteen members – Ann-Marie Askew, Max Brown, Dan Christensen, Sabine Dutoit,
Marilyn Kerins, Don Ladigin, Anne McLucas, Joe Neal, Sig Otto, Sharon Ritchie, Jan True,
Heiner Wagener and Effie Neth, leader/sweep.
