Lower McKenzie River Trail

December 7, 2005

After two cancellations and one no-show the five people remaining could fit into one car. We parked at the McKenzie Ranger Station, crossed the highway and headed along the river. It was cold, 28 degrees, but that made the snow crisp and crunchy under our feet and encouraged us to keep moving. The water was high and swift. At this time of year the mosses are bright green and varied and we enjoyed the beauty and peace of the woods. We ate lunch at Lost Creek where Bob spied a ruby-crowned kinglet. We then retraced our steps and by the time we returned it was snowing. This was a first time on this portion of the trail for all except the leader. I enjoyed being with this very companionable group and want to thank Bob for driving.

Hikers were Tom Adamcyk, Sherwood Jefferies, Bob and Doris Jones and Margaret Prentice, leader.
