Ten hikers signed up. Nine of us left town at 8:10 and met our 10th at
Westfir. We drove to the trailhead at Box Canyon and started up the
Grasshopper trail at 10:00 going counter-clockwise on this loop trail.
We reached Chucksney Mountain (actually, a long ridge) at 12:45. We
enjoyed lunch under cool, mostly sunny skies. The Three Sisters and
nearby peaks were spectacular. We then continued the loop and got back
to the van at 4:00. We made it a loop drive by going north to the Hwy.
126 and back to town at 6:00. Hikers were Steve Schriver, Daphne James,
Kurt Koivu, Karen Rayle, Elle Weaver, Robert Huntley, Zella Andreski,
Effie Neth, and Rod Wood, and Allan Coons, leader.
