We were amazed that rain eluded our 3½ hour hike that included a
minuscule patch of snow and some sun on Baldy. It was definitely prime
time for the calypso orchids that provided copious purple color spots
along the trail. Other flowers we enjoyed were trillium, fawn lilies,
hounds tooth plus a few bleeding hearts, shooting stars, and irises.
It was the first time for Joella Ewing, Helen Martz, Tom Musselwhite,
and Chuck Wagar to hike the Ridgeline Trail from Blanton to Spring.
Other members on the hike were Jean Coberly, Janet Jacobsen, Martha
Welches. Thanks to the four drivers who helped facilitate the car
shuttle for a pleasant one way hike.
