Upper Rogue - Union Creek to Woodruff Bridge 5-27-15

Photos by Francie, Gary and Keeley. Track by Keeley.

It was a gorgeous day for the Rogue Gorge hike from Union Creek to Woodruff Bridge.  Blue sky, sunny day with temps in the low 70s.  An unexpectedly small group of 6 left Haggen's (nee Safeway) in two cars to the Woodruff trailhead drop-off and then continued on in Lexus luxury to the Union Creek trailhead just past Beckie's. 

We stopped for a noonish lunch at Rogue Bridge (thank you for CHOCOLATE, Lynn) and then hiked on to WB by 1:30.  Refreshments were taken on the patio by the river at Rogue River Lodge.  Back in the Haggen's parking lot, Francie's semi-flat tire looked worse than when we left.  Before a Fix-A-Flat can could be bought and attached, good Samaritan Lynn had the rig jacked up and the wheel off.  I waved good bye to the pair as they headed out in Lynn's car to Les Schwab.

What a great day to be out hiking. We started out at the River Gorge parking lot with 69 degree weather and sunny. Although they were past their prime there were still some dogwoods in bloom. When we got to the footbridge across the Rogue River we opted to cross and climb the hill before dropping into Natural Bridge for an Annie lunch. The final three miles went by in just about an hour. Refreshments were enjoyed out by the river at the Rogue River Lodge.
