South & North Shasta Loops + Woodson

December 5, 2004

For the first time since I’ve been leading this urban hike, it didn’t pour. A few minutes after getting home, however, the heavens opened up with heavy rain and hail. During the hike, though, it was sunglasses weather. Starting at Firland and Spring, we followed Woodson Lane along the city/county border, enjoying the fine view of LCC and Mt. Pisgah made possible by the fir forest that disappeared a couple of years ago. On the uphill approach back to Spring we saw a vineyard that wasn’t there on the spring hike. Lots of conversation and occasional critical commentary resulted from our walk past the mansions on Spring, before heading down South Shasta Loop to Dillard and back up the always challenging North Shasta Loop. There were 15 signed up, but three cancelled and seven (mostly non-members) were no-shows. On the hike were: Suzanne Steussy (a former member back in Eugene after eight years in Portland), Dick Hildreth, Jim and Sharon Duncan and Marshall Kandell (leader).
