Heceta Head

June 23, 2010

The weather gods were in our favor as we didn’t have any rain, only clouds and a nice cool temperature which was ideal for hiking. Our group of four started from Washburne State Park day use area and hiked south on the beach to the Hobbit Trail. We had only one stream crossing where a few of us got wet feet. We climbed up the headland to the lighthouse. On the way we met a former Obsidian member hiking the opposite direction and then on arrival at the lighthouse, we met Obsidian member Birgitte Williams with some guests from Norway. After lunch three of our group toured the lighthouse and then we returned the same way we came. There weren’t the usual good photo ops as it was a little too cloudy. There were a few wild irises in bloom. This trail often has very muddy spots so hiking poles are put to good use. This was the third trip for Marcia Karnesky so she is ready to become a new member.

Hikers were members Dan Bates, Brenda Kameenui and Sandra Larsen (leader); and nonmember Marcia Karnesky.
