Upper Rogue - Woodruff Bridge to Prospect 4-30-14

Photos by Dan and Lynn

Lovely day with temperatures climbing from the low 60s into the low 80s with plenty of sunshine.

Heading south from Woodruff Bridge we encountered some deadfall and overgrowth but managed to stumble our way through. We enjoyed an Annie lunch at River Bridge siting on logs overlooking the river.

Just south of River Bridge we came upon a beaver work area where they had successfully dropped one tree, had one leaner and were working on a third. The trail was also in better shape from there on down to Prospect with recent chainsaw work evident.

Of course, the highpoint of the day was the grand reopening of the Rogue River Lodge. It was quite pleasent sitting in the shade and enjoying our refreshments with the river rushing by. Unfortunately, this was not an unalloyed joy because we learned that Kerry will be moving to the Spokane area in June and we will have to break in a new wait person. We did decide to schedule a hike up in that area to coincide with her last days so as to give her a proper send-off.
