Blacklock Point - May 6, 2017
Coordinator Rheo Wheeler, narration and pictures by Rheo Wheeler

We did not have a large crowd for this hike, boy did you all miss a great hike. The clouds blew away, wow did it blow, but the temperature was perfect for hiking and pictures.

Seven of us met in Roseburg and traveled over to the air field in Port Orford and met four others, total of 11. We hiked down to Blacklock Point for lunch on the windswept cliffs overlooking the ocean. Actually we had lunch hiding from the windblown sand in the bushes and trees just back from the view.

We then traveled on towards Flores Lake to find another photo op, looking over the cliff for a backside view of the arch on the beach. This was about 3.5 miles in so half of us headed back to the cars for a little over 7 miles. The other half continued on towards Flores Lake, thank you Richard, for a 10 to 11 mile hike.
