Upper Rogue - Woodruff Bridge to River Bridge 6-12-17

Photos by Bob and Nanci

A sizeable collection of 18 hearty hikers defied potential downpours and set out on a 9.2 mile hike  to capture the wonders of Takelma Gorge before the Rogue goes back to normal. It was a sight to see although not as wild as the Wednesday Group witnessed earlier. 

We were lucky about the weather and were able to shed a layer or two during the hike. We had lunch at River Bridge on the rocks beside the river. After lunch we set out at a rapid pace for Woodruff Bridge. 

We tested our new radios and Bob Palermini donated two old ones that are compatible so we will have 6 instead of 2. Jean took on her role as sweep with great vigor and all hikers were herded back to civilization intact. Rich got his half of the multitude to River Bridge in decent time despite considerable photographic activity along the way. 

Extra Credit:

A time and distance award to all as we covered the 4.6 mile return in about 2 hours. 

Donations of $1 each will pay for a good part of the new radios.

To Bob for donating his old radios. 

A good day was had by all.
