On Saturday, July 23, eight enthusiastic hikers headed for Oakridge to see Lillian Falls. We encountered some wildlife during our drive to the trailhead (deer, grouse, quail) and on arrival we found mosquitos!
Once on the trail we saw lots of old growth trees and numerous wild flowers, including some late blooming Rhododendrons.
There was plenty of water coming down from the Waldo Lake watershed so the falls were very nice!
It was a perfect day, low 80s,and after hiking back to our cars we drove to the Joe Goddard nature trail. There we admired the " really old growth." It is really wonderful that people had the foresight to leave some of these 600 plus year old trees for us to witness.
Then it was on to the root beer stand for lunch and a special treat - old cars! They were having an old car rally and they too were well preserved and beautiful.Members: Guy Strahon, Judy Terry, Suzanne Steussy, Jacque Davis, Joanne Ledet, Karla Rusow.
