One of the many benefits of being an Obsidian is the chance to make new friends. Bill Russell and Steve Hennes were delightful hiking companions. It was a beautiful sunny day. We headed up the Castle Rock trail stopping to admire the wildflowers, 500-year old growth cedars, a stunning Madrone and a spot-on view of the Sisters. We also got a peek at Mt. Washington. We had a relaxing lunch and reluctantly head back down to my car. We went to the Ranger Station to get topographical maps and our bible, ‘a Sullivan’ (Central Cascades). We were tempted to stop at Mom’s Pies (Rustic Skillet); next time for sure. This was the 3rd hike for both Bill and Steve; they are joining Obsidians.Members: Ellen Sather.
