Cascade Head

July 26, 2004

A jolly group of five women set out to help the leader celebrate her birthday by hiking one of the two most beautiful places on the Oregon coast. After a pleasant drive up 99W through the fertile farmland and then westward to the coast, we reached the trailhead at about 10:30 and made a leisurely hike up to the most gorgeous views of the coastline, coast range, the Salmon River estuary, and the great Pacific. We spotted a few of the rare hairy checker mallow flower and some small silver-spot butterflies. Afterward we had a leisurely drive down the coast, with stops for sight-seeing and ice-cream. Members Wendy Clarke, Sandra Larsen, Anne McLucas (leader), and Nola Shurtleff showed newcomer to the state Eileen Kegel our favorite places.
