Cape Lookout, January 20
Six of us weather-optimists were rewarded; the rain stopped just as we drove into the trailhead parking lot, and we stayed dry for the whole hike. We even had some sunshine, and just one small sprinkle. The wind picked up, but was not cold. We were reminded of one of the reasons we love Oregon forests: they stay green in the winter, with salal, ferns, moss, and the sitka spruces. Guests Dennis Dunn and Patrick Harkins; members GwenEllyn Anderson, Mary Elliott, Rosamund Irwin, and George Struble, leader.
William L. Finley NWR, January 7
Members Ted Young, Susan Hoskins, Robbie Earon, Gayle Smith, Diana Gleason and Randy Selig and guests Carol Jones, Linda Moore and Don Upjohn joined leader Georgienne Young to hike at William L. Finley on two connecting trails, the Woodpecker Loop and the Mill Hill Loop for a total of 5.1 miles. Our bird sightings included a magnificent pair of Hooded Mergansers. The forecast for today had not been promising but we got lucky in having dry skies until we were all back in our cars heading to Corvallis New Morning Bakery for well earned refreshments following the activity.
