Cone Peak Meadows

June 23, 2007

The Trail Head was filled with people from Eugene. It happened that about 20 people from the Downtown Athletic Club were there to hike Cone Peak area also. The eight of us started on the east side of Tombstone Pass for the moderate hike to Cone Peak meadows and the loop around Iron Mt. It was not long before we were rewarded with a beautiful palate of colors. The blue larkspur was everywhere, as well as Indian paintbrush, cat’s ear, bleeding heart and numerous other wild flowers. Maggie was equipped with a wild flower book for this area and therefore became our “expert”. We meandered through the meadows taking pictures and soaking up the “eye candy”. Lunch was high on a ridge with nice views. We lost the spectacular views of the wild flowers as we continued north and west around Iron Mt.

Hikers were members: Barb Bruns (leader), Maggie Gontrum, Patricia Macafee, Virginia Rice, Karla Rusow, Pat Soussan and Judy Terry; and nonmembers Ken Rosemanen.
