Cape Mountain

April 25, 2009

Hiking with a few friends who enjoy each otherís company compensates for less than ideal weather, and that was the story of our trip to Cape Mountain. Although the sun was out when we left Eugene, it was a cool, sometimes cold and windy day up on Scurvy Ridge as we hiked through the mixed Coast Range forest of fir, spruce, hemlock and cedar to the Indian shelter replica. We retraced our steps to a viewpoint of the ocean for a quick lunch, then continued to the top of Cape Mountain. Along the way Ranger Rick identified many of the fresh green plants and wildflowers that were springing up. Given the weather, we took a shortcut back to the Dry Lake trailhead and called it a day. On the way home we treated ourselves to refreshments at Alpha Bits, perhaps the highlight of the trip. Members, and good sports all, included Rick Ahrens, Jim Duncan, Sharon Duncan, Margot Fetz, and Margaret Prentice.
