Rebel Rock Loop

June 21, 2003

This years Rebel Loop hike was a cloudy one, but luck! Without rain. The seven adventurous hikers were about the best group I have led in years on the difficult trek. I am sure of this because I wasn’t lynched at the trailhead after the hike. Last year I went too far before the elusive uphill start of the cross country thrash. This year I fixed that by starting too soon and angling too sharply to the right. Surprise, we ended up on top of Rebel Mountain instead of on the ridge looking at Rebel Rock. Had to climb down to Rebel Rock and our (late) lunch view spot. Over much longer and more difficult than it should have been. Lost, never, just saw a lot of scenery and brush for the first time. Very confidence inspiring. Some mumblings but no shouting. A good sign. After that, the usual long, brushy hike to the welcome trail, a lookout stop, then the four mile downhill test of knees and quads. Next year? I will hit the correct uphill start. As my reputation for “challengin” hikes spread, I will most likely be THE sign up. The world class good sports were: Danny Baihuber, John Cooper, Becky Hansen, Larry Huff, Barbara Leinweber, Mike Milliken, Craig Weinerman, and Ed Lovegren, leader.
