Happy HikersNever to be disappointed when there's questionable weather in the forecast, which called for high winds, rain and snow, I had three eager participants ready to take on the elements.  When we arrived at Clear Lake we were pleasantly surprised with light snow fall, which continued on to the turn around point.  Along the trail we saw many old growth fir trees, judging from the diameter had to be well over 200 plus years in age.  Also we observed a prime example of a Nurse Nurse LogLog, which had at least 50 or more young trees nurturing and making way for the new generation.  We hiked along both side of the McKenzie River to view the falls, which was a first for many.  On the return our luck changed and had a constant drizzle and slogged our way back.  Generally speaking we all had a good time, regardless of the not so ideal conditions.
