Eagles Rest

December 7, 2008

Nine noble hikers got an early start on this relatively close trail. Sullivanís instructions were good. The conifers, vine maples and rhododendrons glistened from recent rains. The trail is a gradual climb over the 2.6 miles up to the rocky cliffs of Eagleís Rest. We could see Mount June under the clouds on the way up. Near the top, the mist discovered gravity. Rain started in earnest and our only views were of clouds. We retreated off the top for lunch at Ash Swale Shelter. With the rain, the trail had muddy sections from sharing with mountain bikers. We scurried down to the parking lot, now packed with mountain bikers. Sandor Lau and Ed Lizewski enjoyed their first hike as members. Sally Morris is not yet a member. Experienced members were Sue Meyers, Sachiko Iwasaki, Lynne Moody, Charlene Pierce, Becky Lipton and leader, Jim Pierce.
