Vivian Lake

September 19, 2009

This was the perfect hike. With all the things that could go wrong on a hike this one unfolded like clock work. The weather was just great when we left Eugene At 8 a.m. We had coffee/restroom stop in Oakridge and on the trail by 10 a.m. The timing was just right, because at around 10:45 a.m. just as we crossed to rail road tracks we were able to see and feel first hand the Amtrac Coast Starlight Train coming from Los Angles heading to Seattle. I love trains and this was a real treat. We had Lunch at Vivian lake and the clouds opened up and we were able to get a good view of Mt Yoran. The water at the lake was too cool for a swim, so we picked a few huckleberry and headed back. We arrived back in Eugene all safe and sound at 4:30 p.m. It was a perfect hike and another wonderful date with nature.
