Where’s Waldo?

12 09 2013

Now that school is back in session and the weather has (theoretically) cooled, Waldo Lake suddenly quiets. The crowds thin, boat sightings are a little less frequent, and the sounds of migrating geese replace the squeals of young ones swimming in the clear, clean, cold waters. How thankful we are that Waldo Lake is still a place that gas motored boats and seaplanes are banned, keeping the lake pristine and quiet. Reduced water and noise pollution means that our children, our grandchildren and all future generations–not to mention the abundant wildlife in the Waldo Lake Wilderness Area–can find the peace of mind we have at Waldo Lake that we have over the years.

We would love your company on Sunday, October 6th on our Family Waldo Lake Canoe trip. The Spirit of Eugene, our trusty 29-foot canoe, will be your mode of transportation as we explore the southern shore and gaze at Diamond Peak and Waldo Mountain. To register or for more information, go to www.eugene-or.gov/recenroll, or call (541) 682-6891. In the meantime, check out the link below from The Sierra Club. The article provides some great background information and history about Waldo Lake, not to mention some gorgeous photos to entice you. Enjoy!
