We observed fossil crinoid stem segments, brachiopod shells, worm tracks, and, near the ridge, corals. Many berries and other fruits were observed and some sampled during the hike, including raspberry, thimbleberry, currant, chokecherry, and serviceberry.
We arrived at the head of Spring Hollow, near the road to Logan peak, at 12:30, and started lunch. While scouting for a place to sit down, Jill and Fan found some large horn coral fossils. Dave W found an antique snow depth pole.
Clouds came over during lunch, making cool conditions for sweaty hikers who did not have an extra jacket. Two chilled hikers started back early to warm up and two hung back to take pictures, but we kept in touch with radios and all were reunited before the last steep section down to the spring.
