Siltcoos River/Carter Lake Dunes

June 2, 2005

Sunshine, a little wind and a congenial group are the best ingredients for wonderful hike. Eleven hikers in three cars drove to the trailhead parking area near the Siltcoos River south of Florence. I break this outing into two parts, doing one hike before and the other after lunch which we have at the picnic tables near the river. In the leader’s opinion, the estuary views and the walk on the beach are always great no matter what the conditions. Seeing all the pelicans, seagulls and sea lions at the mouth of the Siltcoos River was a bonus. Everyone agreed the weather was cooperating to make it very good trip. Enough of a breeze so that we were all comfortable walking through, up and down the dunes on the Carter Lake Dunes portion of the hike. Hikers included members Anne-Marie Askew, Max Brown, Barbara Bruns, Sandra Larsen, Barbara Morgan, Margaret Prentice, Ginny Reich, Ruth Romoser, Sharon Thomas and non-member Alice Nyitray. Leader: Sheila Ward.
