I dare you to spot the break! Loop trail obstruction removed There are some beautiful foxgloves near the Griffith Creek pond. They are an invasive, apparently, but I can’t bear to remove them. Columbine Bill and I participated in a tour of Jim and Ed Mer….’s 1000 acre tree farm (Oak Basin TF). I fell in love with their signage. Near the top of one of the Coburg Hills, a range of foothills of the western Cascade Range of Lane and Linn counties. The view of the south Willamette Valley is amazing (especially if there weren’t some fire smoke drifting in). The brothers built a one-room hunting (?) cabin near the top. Jim M. shows us the Spirit Tree, a historical sacred place for the Callipooya. It is likely more than 500 years old.
