Glide Flower Show
April 28, 1974
Though we listed this as “Hike Optional” everyone went on
the hike to Fall Creek Falls (2½ miles round trip) and enjoyed the
nice sunshine and many plants along the trail.
The flower show was excellent as usual and included, as usual, several
new flowers with some of the old ones missing because of a late season
in some areas.
The show gets material from most of south western Oregon with scattered
items from as far away as the Columbia River Gorge.
Currently it is the biggest and best flower show on the West Coast and
probably in the United States (wildflowers-that is).
The only problem is that the last Sunday in April is also White-water
Boat Parade day on the North Umpqua and since stopping of the McKenzie
River Boat parade, this has become an impossible day to do anything along
the North Umpqua.
So hereafter the Wildflower Show day will be requested for Saturday, when
the main traffic will be to the show.
Smelling the flowers were
Man Wai Lau,
Betty Wadell, leaders were
Kenneth & Robin Lodewick.
