Eagles’ Rest

July 13, 2006

Five people signed up for the hike. After one cancellation and one no-show our numbers were reduced to three. We headed out Highway 58 and turned south on Goodman Creek Road, just past mile post 20. It was pleasant to discover that the 3.3 mile road to Eagles’ Rest trailhead is now well graded and graveled. It was also pleasant to hike the 2½ miles. Recent rain freshened the forest trail to the Eagles’ Rest summit, especially while glimpsing an occasional tiger lily in bloom. Somewhat less pleasant was our inability to see fog shrouded Mt. June. But wait, did you know that 4600' Mt. June is so named because Elijah Bristow spotted snow on its summit in June of 1846? Overall a very satisfying experience.
