Vivian Lake

August 25, 2007

Five hikers left Eugene for a date with nature. Rod Wood, our sixth hiker, met us at the trailhead. We departed the trailhead at 9:40 a.m. and were on Vivian Lake trail by 10:30 a.m. With sweat and grit we hiked up a steep one and half mile trail next to Fall Creek. The sound of rushing water from the creek had a cooling effect, which made the hike quite refreshing. With a brief stop at Fall Creek Falls for photos, we arrived at Vivian Lake at 11:30 a.m. The weather was perfect with no mosquitoes. We hiked the north side of Vivian to view Mt Yoran, then the south side for lunch. During lunch we were entertained by small water snakes, tiny green frogs, and Brad Bennett, who braved the cold water for a swim, but was unable to get anyone else to join him. After lunch we started our hike back, picking a few huckleberries on our way down. We hiked down to Diamond Creek Falls and around the north loop of Salt Creek Falls trail. We arrived back at our cars happy for another wonderful date with nature. Hikers were members Charles Durham (leader), Brad Bennett, Rod Wood, Cork Higgins, Carolyn Higgins; and nonmember Dave Compton.
