Nine hale and hearty Obsidians ignored the weather reports and accompanied me on a trip to this nearby state park, named for the Upper Willamette Valley's first settler. After the last couple of weeks of foul weather, the trail is muddy and there are no flowers yet. Our walk took about three hours and we were treated to rain, hail (often!), wind and, finally, warming sunshine all through our lunch! We found the park all but deserted, except for hundreds of violet-green swallows, one great blue heron, two cormorants, a half-dozen buffleheads and a few other ducks we couldn't identify. My Obsidian companions were: Jim and Sharon Duncan, Pat Soussan, Walt Dolliver, Don Colgan, Nancy Whitfield, Ruth Romoser, and Barbara Morgan. Thanks to Jim for driving and to everyone who took a chance on the weather. Barb Revere, leader.Members: Ruth Romoser, Sharon Duncan, Jim Duncan, Walt Dolliver, Barb Revere, Nancy Whitfield, Barbara Morgan, Pat Soussan, Don Colgan.
