Upper Rogue - Woodruff Bridge to Prospect 5-24-17

Photos by Dan, Denise, Francie and Keeley

We started the day under partly cloudy skies and 68 degree weather. There was a soft breeze blowing up the river, so we never really got hot. The river was very full and it was in a mad rush to get on down the river to some other place. We did manage to get off trail at one point, but with some simple bushwhacking, we were back on the trail in no time.

This hike is slightly downhill overall (after all we were going DOWN river), but there is always some up and down along the way. We saw lots of flowers in bloom, especially the dogwood trees. Mushrooms seemed to be popping out everywhere. Several large trees had fallen into the river, still connected to the shore and they were bouncing up and down about a foot, as the river flowed over and under them. At one point, it was clear that the river had taken 16 to 18 inch in diameter logs and just broken them into several smaller pieces. Mother Nature had been working hard at redecorating/landscaping along the river this spring.

Lunch was taken near River Bridge and the good weather was enjoyed by all. We took refreshments at Pizza Schmizza Pub and Grub in Eagle Point. Good selection of beer and the fries were enjoyed my most.
