Siskiyou Peak 9-2-19

Photos by Barry H., Barry M., Jerry and Valerie. Track by Jerry

Eighteen hikers turned out including three first time hikers with the Monday group. The hike was changed to the 7.4 mile PCT hike up to the Siskiyou Peak summit at 7,147 ft..

It was a mild sunny day with an occasional refreshing breeze of 10-15 mph. Everyone seemed to enjoy our Labor Day hike including Steve and Maria's friend Gigi Green, an experienced hiker from Eugene; and Anne Marie Avegno and Valerie Zanotto recent to Ashland who look forward to joining the group.

Our originally scheduled hike on the Split Rock trail has been postponed until cooler weather moves the active hornets into their dormant stage. It's a scenic hike with lots of ups and downs and a total out and back of 8 miles.

Lunch atop Siskiyou Peak was a pleasant repose after the climb up and offered nearly 360 degree clear views of the surrounding peaks.

Thanks to Jerry who volunteered to find a wayward SUV full of hikers and brought them back to hook up with the main group.

Refreshments were taken at Caldera with a full table of thirsty hikers.
