November 7, 1993
Who would have believed that a November 6.5-mile hike in Oregon would include a sunny, windless,
barefoot stroll on the beach, swimming in Threemile Lake, a leisurely lunch overlooking the lake,
a short excursion to Florence’s Old Town and a return to Eugene before dark.
Throw in a sighting of a bald eagle perched on a tree overlooking the river just out of Mapleton
and you have what turned out to be a most perfect trip for these 11 hikers:
Emily Bellinger, Kevin Clark, Bidyut Das, Jeanne Haines, Dick Hildreth, Jean Skinner, Arun Toke,
Christy White, Margee & Megan Wright and Sylvia Harvey (leader).
