The parking lot was packed when we arrived at the trailhead to particpate in one of the largest and greatest wildflower treks in the Northwest. We met folks all the way from Seattle to eastern and southern Oregon, all eager to conquer the mountain and see for themselves the acres of flowers, featuring sunflower-like Balsomroot. Nine happy hikers reached the summit and enjoyed the warm sun and the view, along with many dozens of other folks. No one wanted to leave, but alas, we admitted that we must return to Eugene and the "real world".Members: Becky Lipton, Lisa Grissell, Holger Krentz, Sarah Praskievicz, Jennifer Haynes, Kate Parrish. Nonmembers: Tom Giesen, Juliana Cichy, Malissa Bare.
