I was in town for the Ducks/UCLA game on November 3. It was sort of a homecoming- I was a law student at UO in the late ‘80, and remember being introduced to hiking the many beautiful trails around Eugene. I really looked forward to seeing some old friends and I promised I must return to some of these hiking trails on this trip. As was expected, there was an off-and-on gentle drizzle which didn’t seem to bother my fellow hikers on this crisp late Saturday morning. The hike was moderately strenuous but very worth it as the views of the Willamette Valley from the summit was a deserved treat. I wished I had more time to hike than the hour I spent on the trail since I had to head back into town for the game. I look forward to another trip to Eugene and hopefully spend more enjoyable time hiking its beautiful trials. By the way,the Ducks won.
