McKenzie River Trail, RS to Belknap

July 7, 2009

The day was glorious, the group was in high spirits and we had a ball. Only half of us went into the pool, but we had a great walk and lots of conversation. One surprise: the grill on the patio was closed! They are open only Wed. through Sunday. We had to buy what we could at the little convenience store in the resort. No one went hungry. Jim P. found huckleberries and many other things to photograph on the trip in and took several group shots. The leader had a challenge with different walking paces within the group and ran back and forth between groups on the up-river leg of the hike. Everyone kept together better on the way back (Whew!). We crowded out the regular riders on the bus ride back to town — standing room only for many miles. The trail, as always, is in great shape: no mosquitoes and all the mountain bikers were curteous and careful. Thanks to all my companions—you made the day and the hike a pleasure.

Hikers were Barb Bakke, LaRee Beckley, Julie Dorland, Mary Holbert, Kathy Lindstrom, Jim Pierce, Ginny Reich, Ruth Romoser, Karla Rusow, Susan Sanazaro, Jim Gillings, Susan Waites, Jan Wulling and Barb Revere, leader.
