Bohemia Mountain

June 21, 2006

I risked scheduling this Lodewick classic even earlier this year than last due to the early date of Summer Camp. The heat wave of early May must have accelerated the snow melt—there were only a few snowbanks left roadside on the way up to the saddle. The weather on this first day of Summer was quite nice for hiking—not to warm and not too cool. Mosquitos were plentiful, especially at the pullout for Bohemia City, but not yet too aggressive. The showy Washington lilies were not yet in bloom but we had plenty of trillium and yellow fawn lilies to make up for it. Two chose not to traverse around the tricky, persistent snow field below the summit of Bohemia Mountain, but were able to enjoy much the same view the rest of us had when we drove to the top of Fairview Peak—peaks from Mt. McLoughlin in the south, to Mt. Hood (maybe—or was that just a cloud?) in the north. We finished this relaxed amble with drinks, snacks, and/or desserts at the Cottage Restaurant back in Cottage Grove. Thanks to Margot Fetz for meeting the group in Eugene.
