May 20-22, 1994
The Oregon Coast was at its finest for this trip, with sunny skies and gentle sea breezes.
We drove to Cape Blanco via Hwy. 38 and camped at Boice-Cope Curry County campground ($7/night).
We were joined Saturday morning by five Sierra Club members from Gold Beach and over the next two
days went on four hikes for a total of 14 miles.
The first left camp and went to the ocean and back via Floras Lake.
The next hike took us from Cape Blanco to the mouth of the Sixes River and back.
The third hike took us to Blacklock Point.
The last hike Sunday morning took us up Humbug Mountain with an elevation gain of 1700 ft.
The trip focused on wild flowers and the beautiful flowers we were blessed with included
footsteps-of-spring, seashore morning glory, Pacific silverweed, seacoast angelica and golden-eyed grass.
Obsidian hikers were Dave Predeek and Mari Baldwin (trip leader);
Sierra Club members were A1 Visado, Diane Conrad, Mary & George Carter
and Dorothea Petersen (co-leader).
