Sutton Creek Loop
December 22, 1991
The Sunday before Christmas was a great day at the coast.
The weather was cooperative for the first full day of winter; nine hikers took advantage of the warm,
non-windy coast day to walk the Sutton Creek loop.
The group started the trail in the campground near the Host trailer making the first crossing of
The trail meanders through the dunes and the forest for a varied experience.
Several white swans were observed in the marshy lake north of the creek and east of the beach dunes.
A trip to Baker Beach north of the Sutton Creek area did not bring a promised view of the gray
whales supposedly heading south.
Oh well, it was a good day for a hike for Susan Baker, Barbara Chinn, Elizabeth Cross, Rebecca Hansen,
Sylvia Harvey, Gary Marx, Denise Sevigny, Bobbye Sorrels and leader Mary Ellen West.
