Takelma Gorge, Upper Rogue River Trail - October 18, 2008
Coordinator Nancy Waugaman, narration by Nancy Waugaman and pictures by Nettie Apland
Fourteen brave souls headed West on Highway 138 to see two things: the changing colors along the Upper Rogue and damage from the Rattle Fire. Good news on both counts, the Rattle Fire evidenced limited damage along Highway 138 and the colors along the Upper Rogue were magnificent. We were joined by three hikers that came to the trailhead via a southerly route and we marched on with a crew of 17. We encountered some rain on our way to the trailhead, and it rained for a few minutes at the start of the hike — but it stopped in quick order and the weather was perfect. A good time was had by all.
This is a very good Fall hike.
