Little Bunchgrass Meadow
December 19, 1987
Three skiers set out from Eugene on a sunny Saturday a week before Christmas.
We were somewhat apprehensive because snow had fallen in Eugene a few days before, and our
trailhead was nearly 3,000 ft. above Eugene on an unploughed road.
An odd temperature inversion saved us, and the trip went as planned.
The snow was deep and crisp and even in lovely Little Bunchgrass Meadow, where we carefully
chose Sub-Alpine Christmas trees.
The bright sun gracing our Picnic made it well worthwhile.
The 2,000 ft. descent with Christmas trees on our backs required some effort, but the rewards of
winter in the Cascades more than compensated Norm Benton, Wanda Cawein and Jerold Williams (leader).
