Gwynn Creek

June 13, 2007

Left Eugene at 8:00 a.m. with a weather forecast of “occasional drizzle” for the Central Oregon Coast. By the time we saw the Pacific we could see blue sky peeking through the clouds. The first leg of the trip, parallel to the coastline, yielded a whale sighting. The second leg, up and up and up Cook’s Ridge, revealed giant Sitka Spruce that must have been watching when Captain Cook sailed along the coast. Also on this leg, we walked through gardens of Sword fern resting beneath the silent canopy. After lunch and conversation, we descended the third leg down into the Gwynn Creek drainage, with its giant firs, Lupine, Foxglove, Starflower and Salmon Berry. Judging by the bubbling conversation and laughter, all eleven hikers enjoyed their outing. A great group!

Hikers were: Bill Buskirk, Myron Cook, Bob Freed, Marshall Kandell, Pat Soussan and Carolyn and Cork Higgins, leaders; and nonmembers: Andrea Callahan, Jim Lobben, Lois Lobben and Elle Weaver.
