Enchanted Forest to the Felton Memorial 4-20-28

Having organized an off-the-cuff flower hike I was pleased to have 16 hikers ready to go at Rite Aid. We overcame some navigational difficulties, with one car following me at a left turn in Ruch and a group of lemmings staying behind them. After considerable time someone remembered that, not being from Ashland proper, I did not drive a Subaru. We waited further down highway 238 in the real leader's car as the 4 chase cars drove hither and yon around the Applegate Valley, out of cell reception. The locals must have assumed it was some sort of car rally. Eventually communications were restored and the troops arrived at the trailhead in a surprisingly good mood.

I should note that at least 5 cars stopped and asked if we needed help as I stood on the corner waiting for sanity to prevail in actually following driving directions. Friendly folks in the Applegate. 

Francie Skinner made her first hike with the Monday Group and took the lead over hill and dale to the memorial for a downed air crew. Lots of flower pictures were taken along the way of a huge variety of plants. Perfect hiking weather and shirt sleeves the order of the day. 

After lunch at the memorial we returned to the parking and adjourned to the Woolridge Winery where we sipped wine on the patio in a very civilized fashion. It was a suitable end for a perfect day.
