Siskiyou Peak from the PCT / FS-40s15 Road Crossing 7-31-17

Photos by Bob and Nanci

We split the group of 20 up, with a few hikers doing the planned hike from Grouse gap and the rest starting at the PCT trailhead beyond and below the ski area parking lot. The concept was to lengthen the hike and add the lower meadows full of flowers. This went according to plan and lots of pictures were taken. 

The weather was fine, with a high of 81 degrees at the high elevation where we started. Unfortunately there was a lot of smoke to the south that obscured the views from the Peak. 

With the two sets of faster and slower hikers we finished at around the same time using different trailheads. The main group did about 9.2 miles and 1200 elevation gain. 

Rich met a surveyor on the trail who told him the marker on top of Siskiyou Peak is one of two in the state used to determine longitudes and latitudes. Who knew? 

In an effort to use sustainable products for useful purposes Nancy Cremer noted Darryl using tree moss for hair restoration. This was immortalized in a photograph. We will wait for results but I am not holding my breath. 

I was astounded by a woodpecker taking a bath on the trail, oblivious to we hikers. Fortunately he had nothing to floss and moved on after cooling his wings.

The multitude descended on Callahans where we received excellent service and even better Ashland Amber to go with the fries. Some were imbibing Arnold Palmers and other strange concoctions. To each his or her own. All agreed it was a great day.
