Amazon Headwaters/Spencer Butte

May 1, 2008

The forecast for May 1st was “The best day of the week!” We were pleased not only with the sunny day but the abundant wildflowers that lined the trail and carpeted the open areas near the summit. The trillium, fawn lilies, calypso orchids, fairy bells, bleeding hearts and so many smaller ones caused us to stop many times. The sumptuous patches of shooting stars were vivid with their contrasting colors. On the way down, we met Stu Rich, a well-known climber and long time member of EMR. He is now 87 years old and has hiked up Spencer Butte over 1000 times. That certainly was our inspiration for the day. The hike took around 3½ hours.

Hikers were: Barb Revere, John Jacobsen and Janet Jacobsen, leader.
