Horse Rock Ridge

March 25, 2005

The grass bald (treeless area) on Horse Rock Ridge was covered with patches of damp snow. Water trickled down the rocky path. With careful looking, we found early flowers including snow queen, lomatium, monkey flower, indian paintbrush, and shooting star. A red tailed hawk flew overhead. Cold wind and fog swept over us as we took in the view. After several minor slips on the slushy snow, we declared victory at the 25 million year old volcanic dike and ate what we brought. Back at the cars, we almost had a car back off the edge but our resourceful Alaskans saved the day.

Participants: David McClurg (leader), Marshall Kandell, Anne McLucas, David Call, Shelly Call, Nola Shurtleff, Margot Fetz, and non-member Sherry Perry.
