Tahkenitch Dunes Loop

January 1, 2005

Under threatening skies thirteen hikers headed to the coast. On the drive there we went through fog, mist, rain and wet snow. At the trailhead we were treated to a hail shower however once we started the sun came out. With the possibility of bad weather and wind, I decided to change my usual route and go clockwise on this loop trail. The hike is quite different from this perspective. We did encounter some rain and another hail shower but for most of the day the sun shone upon us and there was little wind on the beach. The surf was great but we did see a dead sea lion on the beach. The drive back to Eugene was uneventful except for all those large, wet snowflakes which fell until we reached Veneta.

Many thanks to those who joined me and thanks for the cards, cookies from Yuan and cupcakes from Shelly. Member hikers were Max Brown, Daniele Delaby, Jim and Sharon Duncan, Yuan Hopkins, Margot Fetz, Marshall Kandell, Barbara Schomaker, Nola Shurtleff and Michelle Tambellini. Nonmembers were David and Shelly Call. Leader: Sheila Ward.
