Eel Creek was a great trip this year.
Shirt-sleeve weather and no wind, but sunny.
We had our usual stop for cinnamon rolls at Arleen’s in Elkton and Dean Creek Elk reserve
presented us with several bull elk lazing in the meadows, both coming and going.
We had a few hours to enjoy the beach and visit before taking our token male (Gene Thaxton) in hand
and heading back to Eugene.
Beach hikers were Yuan Hopkins, Sandra Larsen, Betty Macy, Sharon Ritchie, Gene Thaxton,
Birgitte Williams and Jane Hackett (leader).
