Thunder storms were predicted for the central Cascades, so we opted
for the similar-distanced Tamolitch Pool from Trail Bridge Reservoir.
(We were all disappointed not to do the climb up Three Pyramids, but
caution prevailed. We doubted we would see much of the view anyway.) We
encountered many mountain bikers, many hikers, but few wildflowers. The
river was captivating and the sun broke through for a few moments while
we were enjoying lunch at the pool — beautiful and blue, as
advertised. The leader was the sole Obsidian on the hike. I was joined
by Molly England, Richard Reed, Sofia McManus, Pat McManus, Chuck
Harpham and Gary Dura. All hikers seemed to enjoy the trip and all took
home membership forms.
