Trip day was overcast, but not raining as we met at 9:00 a.m. LCC
and headed to Larison Creek.
All the participants were Obsidians so we organized quickly and headed
up the trail.
Several species of wildflowers were noted—cat’s ears,
false Solomon seal, strawberry blossoms and wild white iris.
Unfortunately, the trilliums and red currant were bloomed out.
Everyone hopefully avoided the patches of poison oak.
Our lunch spot was reached and we did a bit of bushwhacking to the rock
outcrop overlooking a pool.
We then headed back and regathered at the trailhead about 2:00 p.m.
