Horse Rock is a Research Natural Area in the Coburg Hills owned and managed by the BLM. It's been in protected status since the mid-1990's due to its meadows and "dike" of lava.
Just two weeks earlier when I scouted this trip, there were absolutely no flowers in bloom. But today, we had a feast -- fawn lilies, shooting stars, calypso orchids, monkey flower, fleabane, and paintbrush were plentiful -- that's what warm, sunny weather brings! Plus we could see the mountains from Diamond Peak to Mt. Jefferson. No fauna, but plenty of flora. This is a short, albeit spectacular hike -- we were back in town by 2:00.Members: Lana Lindstrom, Kitson Graham, Anne Montgomery, Patricia Esch, Helen Martz, Nancy Whitfield, Effie Neth, Evelyn Nagy, Sandra Larsen, Moshe Rapaport, Dick Hildreth.
