Barbara Morgan and I began at the Amazon parking lot and headed
south. We veered off to the west to head up a “secret” path that wound
up to our first cemetery where we had beautiful views to the north of
Eugene dressed in its Fall glory. Upon hiking to the other side of the
cemetery, we went by another “secret” path that took us past an
inquisitive goat before we got to a street to that led us up the hill
then down to our second cemetery. This time we had a great view of the
east hills as we hiked down to Willamette Street. We crossed Willamette
and headed east before turning north to the third cemetery. We paused
for a brief lunch on a very cold bench as we ate among the tomb stones.
After lunch we continued north to the campus cemetery before heading
back to parking lot. On the way to the lot Barbara got entranced with a
house that was being relocated so she paused to observe the goings on.
It was a beautiful sunny Fall walk. —Janet Hall, leader.
