Tahkenitch Dunes Loop

January 1, 2007

I was concerned that we might encounter downed trees on the trail so decided to do the hike in the wrong direction-going clockwise instead of my usual counter-clockwise. This makes for a very different trip and once more I know it is not my favorite direction. Nonetheless we did not encounter any problems. As a matter of fact, the trail had had maintenance and was in better shape than it had been in October. Although we had started out with a light rain, by the time we reached the beach and stopped for the lunch, the sun was out and with no wind, it was wonderful. Tahkenitch Creek has caused extensive erosion of the beach and some of the trail so that now you must walk up the creek shoreline a short way to get up to find the trail. After this outing with an amiable group we headed to Dairy Queen in Florence for treats. Hikers included members Ann-Mary Askew, Dave Becker, Stephen Brander, Max Brown, Barbara Bruns, Paul Flashenberg, Stewart Hoeg, Yuan Hopkins, Patrice McCaffrey, Barbara Morgan, Kathy Riddle, Nancy Whitfield and leader Sheila Ward.
