Fuji Mountain Hike

August 21, 2010

The four of us fit comfortably in Rod’s Forrester. We arrived at the trailhead by 10:45, after a pit stop at the Oakridge Dairy Queen. We were on top by 11:40, having seen lots of purple aster-like flowers and some not-yet-ripe huckleberries on the way up. Mosquitoes were not a problem and the temperature was perfect. The view was, as advertised, spectacular in spite of some high clouds. We could see all the Cascade peaks from Mt. Jefferson in the north to Mt. Thielsen in the south. Waldo Lake was at our feet with its surrounding peaks of Mt. Ray, Maiden Peak, and The Twins. After lunch and some picture-taking, we were back in the car before 1:00 p.m. Since it was so early, Rod suggested that we drive up to Salt Creek Falls, which was only six miles further up Highway 58. This was a treat for those who had never seen it. We were back at SEHS by 3:00 p.m. Obsidians were Sarah Praskievicz and Rod Wood (leader) and non-(but-soon-to-be) members Jerry Pergamit and Maria Elena Munoz.
