Trapper Creek to PCT

January 19, 2008

After leaving the overcast in Eugene, we hit sunshine near Oakridge, which lasted the whole day. There was at least six feet of snow on the trail with no previous skiers or snowshoers which made following it a challenge. We missed a sharp right turn shortly after crossing a narrow bridge which led to an extensive detour. With map and compass we headed cross country and luckily came out right at a blue diamond marker. After stopping for lunch we set out again on the trail hoping to make it to the railroad tunnel at the PCT. We lost the trail again and decided to head back. With only a minor detour on the return we happily returned to Shelter Cove Resort for some hot refreshments. Special thanks to Dick and Laurie for navigation and driving.

Participants were: Walt Dolliver, Laurie Funkhouser, Dick Hildreth, Daphne James, Sue Meyers, Lynne Tracy, Elle Weaver and Paul Flashenberg, leader.
