Heceta Head - October 30, 2010
Coordinator Lois Soulia and Rheo Wheeler, narration by Lois Soulia and pictures by Bill Richard O'Neill

The weather reports all said rain, rain, rain, ranging from 50% to 70% and possible 20 mile winds but 21 FOU members turned out to hike the Heceta Head trail to Carl Washburn and back again. 

Jane, hiking with the faster group, kept them on track. Rheo stayed at the Hwy. 101 crossing to catch the next group. There were not enough radios for the group to stay in contact. Although there were three separate groups hiking, all attained their goals.

Great vistas of the ocean and the spruce woods, the wonderful fall colors going to and from the hike, a wonderful cardiovascular workout and a safe return back to the start at Devil’s Elbow State Park. Some members took the time to investigate the Heceta Head Lighthouse, a real treasure. 

Best of all, the weather cooperated, no rain and not much wind, who could ask for anything more?
