It rained Tuesday through Friday before the hike. The sun shone super
the day of the hike. The next day it started raining again; there is a
hiking God. Five black tailed deer were spotted, plus lots of various
scat. The lower trail was muddy in spots. The middle trail was clear.
Snow was on the upper trail to about a depth of six inches at Young's
Rock. Danni, a friend of Lainey, is helping her get in shape to climb
middle Sister this summer. Today's trip was the most elevation gain ever
for Lainey, who did very well. All of us exerted good energy, for, if I
may so, a superb outing. Non-member Lainey Cornell joined members Sue
Meyers, Danni Harris and Chuck Wagar.
