Chucksney Mountain

July 29, 2006

Only one person signed up for this hike, Dick Hildreth. We left Eugene a little before 8 and arrived at the trailhead about 9:30. The day was clear and cool. I have led this trip many times (no, not too many). The highway trip can be a loop, and the hike is a loop hike as well. (Hwy 126 - Aufterheide Drive - Hwy 58.) This is the first time I have made both loops in a clockwise direction. It’s a little longer clockwise to the lunch spot on Chucksney Ridge. The views of the Three Sisters and Bachelor and Diamond Peak and other peaks was spectacular — none better with the old Cascades in the foreground. We were too late to see a lot of wildflowers. (There are better wildflower hikes, anyway.) There were lots of small orange butterflies, a few small blue ones and a few swallowtails. If no one signs up next year, I’ll take my dog, Louie.
