SW Hills of Eugene

March 16, 2008

The weatherman cooperated and we had a lovely, dry day for our hike through the hills of SW Eugene. We met at the Churchill Plaza and started hiking along Warren St., cutting into the woods for a steep climb along a paved path. When we got to the top of the path we walked along a city street for a short distance until we noticed a raccoon peering around a fence, curious about our intentions. We passed him by as we heard the sound of a wild turkey and soon spotted a tom and three hens feeding in a clearing. The tom had spread his tail feathers in an attempt to attract the hens, but they were unimpressed. We continued on the street spotting a lone deer grazing in a yard. We started downhill on another paved path, following along a small creek full of water from recent rains. We eventually got to Brittany St. and walked along until we got to McCornack school, cutting through the playground and along another small path until we got back to our cars. The hikers who enjoyed a four mile walk were members Wayne Cleall, Julie Dorland, Joanne Ledet (leader), Barbara Morgan, Beth Roy and non members Patricia Chambers and Jon Tesdell.
