McKenzie River Trail

June 12, 1982

We left S.E.H.S. parking lot shortly after 8:00 a.m. in a light rain that seemed to get heavier the closer we got to the trailhead. Undaunted, we were on the trail by 10:15 a.m. The rain stayed with us until the end of the trail at Buck Bridge, but we had an enjoyable hike. The rhododendrons and dogwood were in bloom, as were wind flowers, wild rose, and honeysuckle. Wildlife sitings were limited to a toad and a salamander. We ate lunch at Lost Creek, where a few hardy souls sat unprotected on the bridge and enjoyed a spectacular view of the McKenzie rushing beneath them. We made the last 2½ miles in under an hour and headed for hot coffee and pie at “Vi’s Pies.” Members Dot Leland, Fred Schepman, Karen Seidel, Bev Thomas, and Bonnie Ledford, and nonmembers Rose Hess, Tom Woxell, and Kathy Ryan made my first outing as leader of a hike a delightful experience.
