Vivian Lake

June 5, 2005

Leader: Diane Jeffcott

Nine people ranging in age from mid 30s to 75 were on this amazing hike. The variable weather provided us with rain, hail, snow and occasional bursts of sunshine. We hiked first to Vivian Lake where we ate lunch quickly on snowy logs or standing up; then hurried down to Diamond Creek Upper and Lower Falls, Too Much Bear Lake and Salt Creek Falls. We visited each and every viewpoint so as not to miss anything. The snow around the Vivian Lake sparkled in the sunshine; it was a real winter wonderland in June. We left Eugene at 8 and were back by 4:30. Bill Sullivan’s book suggests hiking this trail in mid June—we all know why! The hardy hikers enjoyed home baked brownies at the lake. On the drive up we saw a flock of peacocks crossing the road—rarely does it get more exciting driving to trailheads.

Hikers were Ann-Marie Askew, Maggie Gontrum, Steve Gunn, Betsy Halpern, Diane Jeffcott (leader), Anne McLucas, Fred Munz, Marina Perry and Nancy Whitfield.
