Mt. Tom Loop

May 24, 2007

Spring was busting out all over as eight Obsidians: Lana Lindstrom, Richard Hughes, Paul Flashenberg, Anne Montgomery, Jean Coberly, Anne Bonine, Cork Higgins, Carolyn Higgins, hiked the forests and meadows of Mt. Tom in the Coburg Hills. Wildflowers abounded, some of which were: Stinky Joe, Polish Miner Salad, lily, Cow Parsnip, Oxeye Daisy, Wild Iris, Wild Rose, Buttercup and of course Stinging Nettles (lots of those). Shortly after lunch, which came with plastic chairs set in an open pine meadow, we were treated with the view of a Red-tailed hawk landing in a nearby tree. Good eyes, Richard! A turkey hen with about eight baby chicks and several resident deer resting up for their next meal rounded out our wildlife viewing. Thanks to all the hikers and special thanks to Lana for being our “town buddy” and to Anne Montgomery for her skill in plant and flower identification. Cork Higgins/Carolyn Higgins
