Cone Peak

June 20, 2009

We had a full group, 12 hikers hopeful of seeing a grand display of wildflowers. The day was overcast with a cool mist. At the trailhead, Tombstone Pass, there was another large group of hikers, the Chemeketans of Salem. Hiking under the canopy of tall trees up to the exposed meadows we were somewhat protected from the drizzle. Larkspur, Indian paintbrush, bleeding heart, false salomon seal, foam flower, various types of violet and many other flowers were present. It appeared we were about two weeks early, before the BIG show of wildflowers. We had a quick lunch at the top of Cone peak due to the windy cold conditions. We proceeded around Iron Mountain and back to the cars to turn on the heaters.

Hikers were Walt Dolliver, Julie Dorland, Ed Lizewski, Guy Strahon, Judith Terry, Ilene Aleshire, Claire Beekman, Tiffany Cavin, Lynda Godell, Richard McGuinness, Diane Pergamit and Karla Rusow, leader.
