The Twins

Sunday, July 21, 2013
Leader: Tom Giesen
Hike: 6.6 miles, 1600 ft (Moderate)

On a warm sunny day, 8 of us hiked to the top of The Twins, annoyed but not annihilated by the pesky mosquitoes (plentiful even on the top!). Lupine were plentiful but small as yet. The trail was fine; a number of tree-falls crossed the trail but seemed easy to step over. A light haze obscured Mt Hood and other, similarly distant peaks. We enjoyed the early-bird (left Eugene about 7:40) advantages in that we had the trail to ourselves until after lunch time, and passed several ascending parties on our way down.

Members: Tom Giesen, Jennifer Haynes, Lisa Grissell, Gary Spizizen, Jim Woodard. Nonmembers: Barbara Gunther, Les Brod, Marian Brod.
