Wild Iris Ridge-New Trail

Tuesday, April 4, 2017
Leader: David Cooper
Hike: 3.4 miles, 620 ft (Easy)

It was a pleasant morning checking out the new trail at Wild Iris Ridge. The area had suffered heavy damage in the winter ice storm and we saw lots of oak and madrone limbs on the ground. But the trails were clear and spring flowers were in bloom. Houndstongue, fawn lily and, of course, wild Iris. The plantings done by Obsidians on trail maintenance seem to be doing well and are keeping erosion at the bridges in check.

Members: David Cooper, Carla Cooper, Nancy Whitfield, Tommy Young, Jane Hackett, Lana Lindstrom, Janet Jacobsen, Charles Ashmore, Dorene Steggell, Sandra Larsen, Jorry Rolfe. Nonmembers: Paul Flashenberg, Betzi Hitz, Karen Yoerger, Marida Martin.
