Threemile Lake

Sunday, July 17, 2011
Leader: Scott Hovis
Hike: 8 miles, 300 ft (Moderate)

We left Eugene with it raining but lucked out @ the coast. It was warm, not raining, and still. No wind was problematic in that it would have been nice to have a breeze because of the mosquitoes. But they were mostly in pockets and on the beach, it was bug free. There is very little plastic; so nice to have the beach volunteers do their thing. I haven't found a good map of the southern part of the Threemile Lake area. It's easy to get turned around in the dune area. Of course one can see and and hear the ocean, so there is always that for orientation. I was very pleased to see so many sand pipers, hundreds of them, they seem to be thriving. There were some cars on the beach; one of the few areas where it is allowed with a permit. The vehicles were parked and people were fishing. The lake is starting to get low and is about to do its annual "split in half " thing.
