Heceta Head Loop

January 26, 2008

Ten hikers willing to chance the weather met at the Target parking lot in a light drizzle that continued throughout the day. However, we all enjoyed our hike from Washburne Park along the beach to the Hobbit Trail, then up and down through the Sitka spruce forest to Heceta Head lighthouse where we ate lunch in one of the former kerosene oil storage buildings. Four of us toured the lighthouse, then we all hiked back up and down the rather muddy trail to the Hobbit Trail where we crossed Highway 101 to return via the Valley Trail where we stepped carefully to avoid the numerous newts underfoot. Not until we climbed back into our vehicles, did the rain get serious, and after a stop for coffee and snacks in Florence’s Old Town, we drove back to Eugene in heavy rain. The nine Obsidians on the trip included Ann-Marie Askew (leader), David Becker, Walt Dolliver, Julie Dorland, Norma Lockyear, Lynne Moody, Chris Pawling, Sharon Ritchie, and Beth Roy, plus nonmember Mary Arnott.
