Finley Wildlife Refuge

Sunday, April 14, 2013
Leader: Joe Sanders
Hike: 6 miles, 100 ft (Easy)

Environmentally, this time at William Finely was perhaps something less than ideal; those all-important migratory geese I was hoping we'd all be overwhelmed with - which prompted me to move up the trip from May to April- had already left the area anyway. And the weather was "spritzy." Fortunately, the more major shower descended as we were nearing the lunch spot with a dry front porch at the historic Feister House. But those huge open wetland fields dazzled green as always, and even though the resident birds were small and inconspicuous to the eye, they sang away at us from nearby trees at sections along the wide (always dry, but untrafficked) graveled roads within the park. William Finely reserve with its expansive open space remains a unique and totally different hiking environment than any other I've experienced in the greater Eugene area. Others in the group echoed these sentiments, as well.
