April 10, 1983
Under leaden, snow-filled skies, sunday’s trip leader made a wise,
popular, 100%-correct decision and re-directed five-person signup away from
scheduled Gold Point Trail and westwards to the Oregon coast.
So starting at the (new?) Dunes Overlook below Florence and striding south,
fun in the sun, a hailstone storm, a search for artifacts (Mari got herself
a BIG bag of flotsam!), a companionable lunch out of the wind, all happened
before hiking (wind-aided) back north on the foreshore and crossing
the Deflation Plain (by way of several new bridges) to the Overlook.
A neat day away (unexpectedly!) from the snow.
Dunes strollers were Mari Baldwin, Dan Bates, John Cecil, Betty Legris
and Don Payne, leader.
