Cone Peak

June 9, 2007

The weather forecast accurately predicted cloudy a.m. and showers in the afternoon. Seven of us met at the South Eugene Parking Lot, introduced ourselves, and got into the leader’s van. We drove along the McKenzie River. Construction and long lines of cars slowed our journey. We continued up the Clear Lake cut-off to the Santiam Pass Highway and headed west for Tombstone Pass and the eastern trailhead. There were a very few blossoms past their peak. A few more were in full bloom. Many more were a couple of weeks away from blossoming out. We hiked up the the bald openings and enjoyed a good display of wildflowers -- and the brisk temperatures of a late spring, breezy, cloudy day. We had lunch and headed back. Hikers were members: Joshua Emmons, Ed Lichtenstein, Pat Hutchins, Brian Hamilton, Mary Hamilton, Allan Coons, leader, and nonmember: Nancy Coons.
