Nordic Club members could pick whether to enjoy autumn or winter on Sunday, Oct. 15.
Linda Frost led 12 hikers on what she describes as a “sunny stroll along the Deschutes River from Aspen to the start of Slough Camp — about six miles.” She reports colorful leaves, sunshine and “good company.”
Meanwhile, three other club members opted to get a jump on winter after seeing the Mt. Bachelor website reported 23 inches of snow at the base of the ski area. The skiers headed to Dutchman Flat and did a couple of large loops around the open area, encountering a handful of other skiers with the same idea.
