Mc Dowell Creek

Saturday, January 18, 2014
Leader: Janet Jacobsen
Hike: 4.5 miles, 650 ft (Easy)

Who would have thought that when we left dreary and cold Eugene at 8:30 am that we would spend the day hiking in the sun? It seemed like October, not January. Our first stop was the Sweet Home Safeway to use the facilities and then on to McDowell waterfalls. By 12:00 we were back in Sweet Home at Los Dos Amigos for lunch. Next stop for our jovial hikers, who forgot their sunglasses, was Cascadia Park to hike the trails to Lower Soda Creek Falls and along the Santiam River until 4:00. Thanks to our drivers, Jan Pylar and Brena Kameenui, who drove carefully back to Eugene in dense fog. The following day, one hiker reported that she had a sunburn.

Members: Jacobsen, Janet, Emlen, Clara, Sanazaro, Susan, Garwood, Judy, Jones, Hazel, Kameenui, Brenda, Hopkins, Yuan. Nonmembers: Pylar, Jan, Hoskinson, Sandy, Jones, Jerry.
