North Umpqua Trail
At the invitation of our neighbors Lyle and Stephanie Schnabel, we took a trip up the North Umpqua River on Friday to visit with them and their extended family and friends who are camping at the Eagle RockCampground. In talking with them we discovered that every year for the past some forty summers they have met and camped together here on the North Umpqua. Quite a wonderful tradition. While in the area, Jeanette and I decided to hike a little bit on the famed North UmpquaTrail. We did just a short section of the Marsters Segment, from the bridge to the junction of the Illahee Flats Trail, as the afternoon heat quickly took its toll on us.
