Heceta Head

May 15, 2010

Our group of nine hikers gathered at Washburne State Park after the drive from Eugene ready to hike along the sandy beach to the Hobbit trail. It was a little cold due to the wind but, as soon as we started up the trail, we were sheltered in the trees and the elevation gain soon warmed us up. The views along the coast to the north were superb and quite a few photos were taken. We ate lunch at Heceta Head lighthouse where some of the group found warm spots in the sun while others admired the ocean views and looked at the sea lions and seabirds which included Brandt’s cormorants and common murres. We returned by way of the forested China Creek trail. Members: Jane Allen, Joella Ewing, Tom Musselwhite, Lamonte Smith, Carol Petty, and Patricia Soussan. Non members: Geri Thomas, Linda Hovey and Eric Grape. Thanks to the drivers and all participants for a very enjoyable hike.
