Mt. Pisgah

May 3, 2008

Six of us met at the main parking lot at Mt. Pisgah at 9:30 a.m. Missing one hiker, we began our trip. At the base of Mt. Pisgah is the main road that goes straight up to the top and an alternate route to the left, which is trail #3. We proceeded on the #3, which is a more gradual ascent. We saw lots of flowers, white ones, blue ones, and the only I can name, purple Dutch Irises. After a mile or so, we ran into our missing hiker making her way back down! She had thought our meeting time was 8 a.m. We will catch up with her next time. We continued along the #3 intersecting the main road. The #3 then turns into a smaller path with parts very muddy due to some water outcroppings. The rest of the path was dry and rutted and afforded some nice views of the valley. We then came upon trail #6 and made our way to top. At the top, we took in the expansive views, always rewarding, examined the map sculpture and had some snacks. On the way down, we stopped to watch some skydivers. Their colorful parachutes were floating down in a not too distant field. All in all, it was a most pleasant hike, inspiring weather, good conditions, and a lovely group of ladies.

Hikers were: Linda Hovey, Misty Forsman, Pat Soussan, Carol Stout, Darlene Thomasac Jane Allen, leader.
