Oregon Coast

March 15, 1981

The dark skies and steady rain convinced six of the eleven who signed up that a nicer day could be spent at home than at the coast. They were mistaken. The five willing to chance the weather started our hiking day at the Forest Service Visitors Center south of Yachats. After a hike up the creek to see a giant spruce tree (it really is a giant), we made our way to the top of Cape Perpetua and lunch in the shelter. Returning a “little” wet, we spent a little time at the visitors Center before pie and coffee in Yachats.

Two more trails to the beach used up most of the day remaining, before Betty suggested one last trail. It turned out that her trail was steep, muddy, and overgrown with head-high salal and very sticky gorse. It was, however, a very nice beach and well worth the trouble of getting to it.

We arrived home after a much fun day of periods of heavy rain, no rain, and very brief blue sky and sunshine. Rain lovers were Betty Legris, Margaret Crosland, Karen Houglum, John Cecil and leader Lee Hatch.
