ON THE TRAIL

This year as in the past your trips committee has worked hard to give you a schedule which we hope will please the large majority. If we see you turn out in large numbers we will know we have been successful.

First on our schedule is a hike to the Coburg Hills May 1st. Don't forget that April showers bring May flowers. This year the flowers will surely be numerous. Come along with Walt and Jean Banks and see if you can pick out your home block from the top of Old Baldy.

Be sure to get your Mother's Day card in the mail early. On Mother's Day, May 8th, Paul and Helen Weiser are taking us to Silver Creek Falls. The hike to see the falls will give all a fine appetite for the potluck at the park. For those who haven't seen Silver Creek Falls it should be said that not only are they extremely beautiful, they are unique in that the trail safely takes one behind the castading waters of the falls.

On May 15 Dave Burwell has arranged to take us by crummy into the timber and logging operations of Rosboro Lumber Company. We will drive by private auto to Finn Rock where we transfer to Rosboro's bus. (Just like Clancy's bus only different.) This trip will take us into new country and will be educational, too.

Ernie and Arlene have promised guided tour of the trail to Cap Hagen Lookout and back on May 22. Cap Hagen will provide us with an excellent view of surrounding mountains including the Three Sisters. This will be the first of our trips to put us atop a high vantage point.

The Stahls promise much to do and see on the May 28-29-30 trip to Fort Rock. In fact, there is so much to see, there is hardly room to tell it all here. This region is in Cen. Oregon in the vicinity of some unusual rock formations. Mike suggests side excursions to Cabin Lake the Newberry Crater area, & Walt promises some rock climbing practice. Sounds like a whale of a week-end, one no one will want to miss. See the schedule and watch for the sign--up sheet for complete details. Let's take advantage of this long weekend holiday.

The June 5th trip to Andrew's experimental Forest and the June 12th trip to Bearbones Mt. Lookout were suggested by the United States Forest Service. Andrews Forest is near Blue River and Bearbones is in the Willamette area up the Rigdon road. Frank Sipe arranged with the U. S. F. S. for these trips and will, with them lead the trips. The leaders and others on the above trips will be glad to see YOU turn out.
