Were we surprised that it stopped raining for our walk through downtown Eugene and up to Skinner Butte. Around 52 degrees, we took our time to peruse the bronze sculptures of Eugene Skinner, Rosa Parks, Downtown Critters, Ken Kesey, Small Girl Waiting for Train, and Wayne Morse. Fortunately, Susanne Steussy was wearing rubber boots and was able to wade and dig in the ancient sand dig at the Riverplay Discovery Village, discovering a bronze fossil and a pioneer artifact. We opted not to dig for more fossils in the wet sand. On the way up Skinner Butte, we met up with the hardworking Oregon Roads crew removing ivy. What a difference that makes. We enjoyed sharing our observations and historical anecdotes about Eugene.Members: Janet Jacobsen, Margaret Prentice, Suzanne Steussy. Nonmembers: Les Benoy.
