Larison Rock

July 29, 2006

Seven of us arrived at the trailhead shortly before noon. With the temperature in the 60s, overcast sky, and not a mosquito in sight, it promised to be a pleasant day for a hike. We were soon climbing through an old growth forest of fir and hemlock. Ten minutes into the hike, the usually indefatigable Walt Dolliver developed leg cramps and was unable to continue. He had not completely recovered from a recent episode of dehydration, so he headed back to the trailhead. Along the way we snacked on some bright red thimbleberries and huckleberries. The sun broke through the clouds just before we reached the summit about noon. We enjoyed lunch and the view of forested ridges and peaks to the South and West, which included Deception Butte. We made it back to the cars to find Walt in good spirits. The hike ended at the Oakridge Dairy Queen for snacks. Hikers were members Debra Higbee, Marc Anthony, Walt Dolliver, Les and Marian Brod, and Rod Wood, leader, and soon-to-be member, Linda Hovey.
