April 27, 1983
A pleasant hike on a most pleasant midweek day to long-neglected
Badger Mountain in the Coast Range was preceded by an unlimited coffee
stop at Hi-Ho-He-Hu’s cafe in Veneta.
After a leisurely 2½ mile stroll up a little-used logging road
to the old lookout site atop the mountain, and views of endless ridges
and hills south and west towards the coast, our crew sunned, lunched,
generally relaxed and ogled Bonneville workmen atop the new communications
On the way down, International Paper’s John Perry (Unit Forester)
met us, offered maps of the area and some helpful suggestions for further
hikes in this fascinating area (watch this space for details).
A further coffee stop (D.Q.) at Veneta completed our day.
On Badger Mountain were Peter Cecil, Bryant Mitchell, Mike Wright
and leader John Cecil.
