Vetter Mountain

3 June 2001

By: Joe Young


Leaders: Joe Young & Stag Brown

We had a great turnout today for the 20th Annual first Sunday in June hike with Stag Brown. About 30 or so people. Sunny, moderate temps, no breeze. We enjoyed talking to the volunteer in the Lookout museum on the summit of Vetter.

After the uneventful hike we celebrated at the campsite near the beginning of the Vetter Mtn Trail. Stag asked everyone to talk about themselves, specifically how they started hiking and wound up in Hundred Peaks. We also talked about the twenty years of first Sunday in June hikes with Stag.

It turns out that quite a few couples first met on hikes in Griffith Park or at a piano bar immediately after a Griffith Park hike. Examples on THIS hike included Ruth and Frank Dobos, Mike and Dotty Sandford, Roy and Karen Stewart, Stag and Nami Brown (whose wedding took place in Griffith Park), Ben and Sarah Pavonne, Barry and Suzanne Hardy, and Jeri and me. (I may have left somebody out.)

Two other couples at the outing who first met on Sierra Club outings were Charlotte Feitshans and Rodger Maxwell, and Jon Sheldon and Rth Felton (with their kids Benjie and Becky).

"Well behaved dogs" were ok today. Only 2 or 3 hiked, but 8 or 9 joined us at the post-hike celebration. There was only one brief incident among the dogs. Dog owners present today included HPS Chair Virgil Popescu, Roy and Karen Stewart, Bruce and Paul Petersen, Jim Fleming, and one or two others.

This was a nice outing. Wish more of you could have been with us.
