A 7:30 a.m. departure helped us get a cool start on the loop trail from Deer Creek parking lot to the Cone Peak Trail. By 12:30 we were at the Lookout platform ready for lunch. The shady sections of the trail and at times a cool breeze balanced the sunny stretches. Although it wasn’t the peak for most flowers, there was plenty of color with the Cascade Lilies the most spectacular. It turned out to be a pleasant hike. The only mishap was when I told everyone to watch for holes in the trail and then a few minutes later, stepped in one and fell gracefully on the trail. From then on, we voiced alerts about these deep holes. It was 91 degrees when we got back to Eugene around 3:30 p.m.Members: Janet Jacobsen, Susan Sanazaro, Suzanne Steussy, Janet Hall.
