Rain never deters serious hikers and nine Obsidians and one potential
Obsidians proved this to be true.
We had light rain in Eugene and some heavy rain at the trailhead in
Florence but for most of the trek it held off to fog and mist.
For the first time I encountered high tide at the beach portion of
the trip and there was also a high surf warning.
This did add a bit of excitement but no mishaps.
After lunch near Threemile Lake, we continued up through the woods
encountering local fauna in the form of many, many newts on the trail
back to the cars.
