We left Eugene for Scott Mountain in wonderful weather that continued the entire day. After leaving the trailhead, the leaders inadvertently got on a logging road. Soon realizing our error, we retraced our steps and were headed for the mountain.
The trail was in excellent shape. It went through the trees and meadows, providing shady and sunny spots. The last one-third mile was fairly steep. All of the group arrived at the top and found the view truly magnificent. We could see in all directions. The visibility gave us views of Mt Hood, Mt Jefferson, The Sisters, Broken Top, Diamond Peak and more.
After a leisurely lunch hour on top, we returned, taking a short (200 yards) side trip to Tenas Lake. Several of our group went for a swim. They reported the water to be great and shouldn’t be missed on a warm day.
Those friendly and good-natured hikers were Harriet Blundon, Donna Holland, Saundra Miles, Norma Lockyear, Betty Powell, Dee Bray, Bonnie Ledford, Alys Riley, and leaders Bob and Ellen Tracy.
