Shasta Loops/Blackberries

August 31, 2007

Despite a rash of cancellations, we still mustered a small army of 14 Obsidians, intent on filling our containers with sweet, succulent blackberries. But, first, there was the hike: down North Shasta Loop and up South Shasta Loop, with occasional stops to discuss the widely varying architecture (and make use of a couple of conveniently placed porta-johns). Once again this year, the hike stalled a bit upon arrival at the first blackberry patches. Despite the leader’s assurances that there were a few hundred more yards of blackberry bushes ahead, it’s difficult to leave the bush in hand. Amazingly, everyone made it back to the cars together, containers (and tummies) packed.

Hikers were: Max Brown, Jean Coberly, Myron Cook, Julie Dorland, Yuan Hopkins, Marshall Kandell (leader), Ann Lichtenstein, Ed Lichtenstein, Mary Morrison, Dave Predeek, Julia Richardson, Bonnie Richman, Barbara Sutherland and Peggy Windle.
