Larison Creek

March 28, 1998

Ten participants in three cars left SEHS at 8 a.m., under cloudy; windy and cold skies. As we drove east on Hwy. 58 we could see a heavy dusting of snow on trees not too far above us. At Oakridge we decided to do our hiking at Larison Creek, which would put us 1,000 ft. lower in elevation than our original destination, thus avoiding the possibility of having to walk in snow. It turned out to be a good plan as we did not encounter any snow and not much wind due to the narrowness of the Larison Valley. The trail was not too muddy and the temperature warmed up some as the sun peeked in and out. Some early spring flowers were in bloom; most noticeable were the trilliums, in full bloom. After four miles we stopped for lunch on the edge of an old clear-cut; then some of the group went on for another 20 minutes while others stayed on the edge of the clear-cut and looked at sugar pines and their large cones. We arrived back at the cars about 3 p.m., and retuned to Eugene. Hikers were Janet Hall, Jack O'Leary, Susan Baker, Elliot Aronin, Wendy Clark, Cheryl Berry, Max Brown, Rebecca Hanson, Mari Baldwin and leader George Baitinger.
