Eddeeleo Lakes

September 12, 2007

After driving past the trailhead, (the sign was on the ground), we shortly came to the end of the road and backtracked. It was a gorgeous late summer day with temperatures in the high sixties and low seventies and bright sun. The trail was in good condition, often cushioned with pine needles. We had a brief view of the Sisters as the trail is in dense woods most of the hike. We missed the faint trail that leads to the picnic spot described in Sullivan’s book. However, after hiking a little further, we found another trail that led to the lake's shore, complete with a large log that offered seating for most of us. Two daring and hearty souls (Dick and Steve) took a brief swim in what was described as invigorating water (most likely a euphemism for cold). On the hike back out, we took an alternative spur trail past Upper Quinn Lake, an equally beautiful lake to lower Eddeeleo, where we had lunched. One car stopped at the Dairy Queen in Oakridge for some well deserved treats to cap the day.

Hikers were members: Myron Cook, Paul Flashenberg (leader), Dick Hildreth, Mary Morrison, Pat Soussan and Elle Weaver, and nonmembers: Felicia Kenney and Stephen Stisel.
