April 3, 1976
At 8:00 a.m. Saturday four people assembled at the School parking lot on a beautiful morning and set out for the trail head on Goodman Creek. We arrived at 9:00 a.m. and after putting on boots, etc. started uphill. It was a beautiful day, clear and cool, with a bit of snow on the ground. Every now and then we would hear a Wren letting the world know how glad he or she was to be alive, or a woodpecker drumming away on a tree somewhere.
We arrived at Ash Swale shelter at 10:00 a.m. and on top of Eagles Rest at 11:00 a.m. We admired scenery, ate our lunch, and soaked up sunshine, at 12:00 noon we started back down the trail and around 1:30 p.m. we arrived at the car.
We then drive over to the trail head of the Hardesty Trail at the highway and everyone went up the trail to the forks of the Hardesty Trail and the South Willamette Trails, where Helen Smith and Mary Bridgeman are laboring mightily. We inspected the trail they are building and decided it was real nice but a lot of work. Soon we went back to the car and headed for home, arriving in Eugene after 3:00 p.m.
On the trip were Mary Bridgeman, Helen Smith, Merle Traudt (leader), and Paula Vehrs.
