Duck Pond to Skinner Butte

February 19, 2009

From the Alton Baker Park duck pond we went east on the South River Trail to Autzen Bridge, then west on the North River Trail to Campbell Community Center, where we made use of their indoor facilities and met a couple of Obsidians who were there for various activities. Resuming our hike, we went up the trail to Skinner Butte summit and checked out the view of the city and surroundings, which were somewhat obscured by low clouds and haze that hadn’t burned off yet. We returned via the DeFazio bike bridge, going by EWEB’s fountain plaza, where Jim Pierce told us all a tall story about Native American maidens and dancing waters. In addition to Jim, hikers included members Myron Cook, Marshall Kandell, Ed Lizewski and Ken Rivernider; and nonmember Nancy Sprague (whose late father was an Obsidian) on her second club hike.
