Clyde Laughlin shared this anecdote with the Land Trust during the Saddle Rock campaign.
Class of ‘52, Saddle Rock
In spring 1952, two males had a bright idea to leave the mark of our class and Saddle Rock seemed the obvious place. We spent a couple of weekends surveying the rock and settled on an area about 30 feet below the saddle, a near vertical cliff. It was quite smooth and we decided that would be our canvas. In those days there were surplus stores in Wenatchee selling anything imaginable, including paint and parachute harnesses.
