Meetup: Bechtel Shelter Snowshoe Hike With Optional
Announcing a new Meetup for Eugene Hiking &
Camping Meetup Group!
What: Bechtel Shelter Snowshoe Hike With Optional
When: Saturday, February 6,[masked]:30
Albertsons @ Hilyard & E 30th
3075 Hilyard St
Eugene, OR 97405
We'll carpool from Albertson's and drive up to the
Gold Lake Snopark, the same place where we went for the Moonlight Snowshoe
Hike. This time, we'll hike in the other direction about 2 miles, mostly
uphill, to the Bechtel Shelter. We'll start a fire in the shelter wood stove,
and maybe roast some hot dogs (or tofu dogs) for lunch.
campers we'll set up camp, either in the shelter sleeping loft (2 or 3
people), or in tents nearby.
Day trippers will then walk back down the
road to the Snopark and drive back. Day trippers are welcome to use
cross-country skis instead of snowshoes.
I'll be bringing 2 or 3 pulk
sleds to haul camping gear, and maybe use to go sledding on Saturday
On Sunday morning we'll take the scenic route back, passing
Midnight Lake and Eagle Rock (Odell Lake viewpoint). I have a video from 2
years ago that shows most of the route, as well as how the sled works at the
following URL : http://www.vimeo.com/783407
Be prepared for rain,
snow, and cold. Campers need a good sleeping bag (20 degree or lower) and
sleeping pad. No jeans or cotton!
