Ridgeline Trail

August 11, 2006

On a welcome partly cloudy day, 12 hikers set out from the Blanton Rd. trailhead for a one-way trip to the Spring Blvd. trailhead. We encountered Janet Jacobsen about half-way along our route. She was just home from a trip to South Dakota and promptly joined our hike! This made our group a lucky thirteen. We hiked through—with only rest stops, but lingered a bit at an inviting mass of blackberries—we aren’t saying where! The trail is in good condition but could use some pruning—especially of the hungry-for-skin poison oak tendrils reaching over the “Baldy bypass” trail. Thanks to Margaret Prentice, Julie Dorland and Tom Adamcyk for the shuttles.

Other hikers were: club members, Carol Petty, Dick Hildreth, Jim Duncan, Sharon Duncan, Jan Jacobsen and Tom Berkey: and non-members Tom Bodley, Sachiko Iwasaki and Caroline Forell. This group reminded me why I love the Obsidians: interesting conversation, cooperative atmosphere and much laughter!
