Twin Lakes (N. Umpqua Hwy.)
May 25, 1980
Leaving Tom Tom Restaurant in Roseburg with our leader, we traveled up the N. Umpqua River, Hwy. 138, to just above Dry Creek store and taking Service Rd. #2611 we went up for about nine miles to the end. On the way up three elk were spotted in a cutover area. As the road came to an end, we ran into snow on the ground and in the air, so decided to have lunch then.
We started in about noon, though the weather was very changeable. As it turned out, even with 2–4 inches of snow on the ground the trip and trail were very good. Several campers were in the shelter and had a nice fire going. We debated and decided to take the trail around the lakes. The lakes were open, but the area looked just like winter. We never went up to the viewpoint as it was clouded in.
Upon reaching our cars, it was decided to go to Indian Caves by a new route. The results of that trip will remain our secret, right group? Anyway, we never found the caves and it was starting to get stormy and dark, so we headed back. On the way back we saw some five deer along the road.
Reaching Roseburg again, we stopped for eats and idle chatter of the day’s trip.. All had a good time. As I’ve said, the weather wasn’t the best, but it sure was green and beautiful anyway.
On this trip were Bob Foster, Elizabeth McMullin, Anne Montgomery, Dot Leland, Doug Long, Helen Lynch, Dorothy Scherer, Clarence Scherer, Sandra Wolcott and Lloyd Plaisted (leader).
