Tidbits Mountain

June 7, 2003

Snow made the trail to the summit of Tidbits impassable the previous weekend, but 90 degree weather for several days made for a successful hike on June 7th. We were in agreement that this is one of the Cascade’s most stellar short hikes. The familiar aroma that emanates from old growth forest on a warm day, heightened our senses as we trekked through clumps of flowering ginger, vanilla leaf, yellow violets, penstemon, and fairy bells (thanks Dan Bates, our plant specialist). The diverse landscape is what makes this hike a gem. Rock spires emerge from talus slopes dotted with trillium and bonsai like trees. The final scramble to the top yielded a view from Hood to Thielsen with stunning “tidbit” rock formations in the foreground. A mere mile of snow on the north slope did not faze this enthusiastic group which included: Dan Bates, Yuan Hopkins, Joe Neal, Ruth Romoser, Michelle Tambellini, Sharon Thomas, Tom Woxel, Mel Zavodsky and trip leader Marsha Barr.
