Lowder Mountain

July 19, 2006

It takes just a little work to get to the top of Lowder Mountain, but the views on a clear day are well worth the effort. Fortunately, our group of 12 had beautiful weather for views of Diamond Peak from the trail and at the top, every peak from Mt. Bachelor to Mt. Hood. We lingered for lunch, taking in the grand spectacle before us before returning to the trail head through sloping meadows of wild flowers. Although the flowers weren’t as prominent as in previous years, there seemed to be enough to keep us on our toes identifying them. We were happy to find that the little clump of gentians which we’ve seen previously on this hike was still there. Back at the car, we enjoyed small slices of cold watermelon before beginning the drive back to Eugene. Special thanks to Anne and Julie for their willingness to drive. The hikers included members Julie Dorland, Jim & Sharon Duncan (leaders), Paul Flashenberg, Dick Hildreth, Sherwood Jefferies, Anne McLucas, and Margaret Prentice, and nonmembers Jacquie Chavarria, Linda Decoccin, Annette Gurdjian, and Christina Leps.
