Trapper Creek

January 3, 2009

Having rescheduled the trip due to weather and losing two drivers, the trip was in jeopardy until a non member volunteered to drive. Unfortunately, he was the only driver so only five of us left Eugene under surprisingly sunny skies. The bridge crossing Trapper Creek was impassable due to snow drifts, so we backtracked a little ways and started up Whitefish Trail (aka Diamond View Lake Trail) which follows Trapper Creek. Conditions were ideal with about five inches of fresh powder, and the trail clearly marked from previous snowshoeers. After a leisurely lunch stop right by the creek, we headed back to Shelter Cove. Everyone agreed it was a lovely first snowshoe of the season.

Participants were Paul Flashenberg (leader), Sachiko Iwasaki, Daphne James, Sue Meyers and Dale Schaper.
