Page S-22 - Shelton-Mason County Journal - Thursday, June 17, 1971 iort l~anger Districts ot Olympic National Forest, according to the June 1 recreation report of Forest Supervisor Wynne M. Maule. June is the best time of year for recreational driving and sight-seeing. Rhododendron, bear grass, dogwood, and scotch broom offer a wide variety of color from Hood Canal to the mountains. Early in the morning clear air offers views of the Olympics, Cascades, and Puget Soundi The early morning is also the best time to see the abundant wildlife along Hood Canal. There are many deer and fawns at the lower elevations. On the sunny ridges mountain goats are seen, rarely. Most elk have migrated to the higher elevations or are found deep in the swamp areas with their new calves. Lake fishing is now at its prime. The many small lowland lakes in and adjacent to the Hoodsport District offer a chance to get off the beaten path or explore new areas. Lake Cushman offers a high success ratio even for the novice fisherman. Favorable and convenient afternoon low tides make for good shell fishing on the Canal. Salt water fishing for salmon and bottom fish is good. Most Hood Canal District trails are usable now. but heavy snow pack has prevented spring maintenance. Windthrown trees may be encountered and snow at 2,500 feet on all trails. The hiker who is willing to walk over snow will have the remote areas to himself. In the Shelton Ranger District most roads above 2,000 feet are blocked with snow. The Wynooche Valley Road has very heavy traffic because of the Wynooche River dam construction. Higher trails are closed." Crews are opening the lower trails. Brown's Creek and Wynooche Falls Campgrounds are open and receiving only light use in early June. No fees are charged in any of the Shelton District campgrounds. In Hoodsport District entry fees are payable at Hamma Hamma and Seal Rock. The annual Golden Eagle pass, costing $1 O, may be used at either. These passes may be purchased at Ranger District headquarters or Olympic Forest headquarters in Olympia. Visiting boaters are welcome to join cruises on South Puget Sound's fascinating inland waters organized every season by the Shelton Yacht Club, an enthusiastic group of salty sailors who for the past twelve years have com- bined sport and sociability in a year-round program. Pride of the club's membership of more than 100 is a handsome, roomy clubhouse overlooking Shelton Harbor. Other clubs planning cruises to Shelton may use the clubhouse by making advance reservations. For information about activities boaters planning to visit Shelton may contact Commodore Clint Willour, Vice-Commodore Chet Glandon, or Fleet Captain Jean Kimbel. A feature of the decorations in the lounge is a display of burgees from other clubs. Most of these are from near- by groups, but two came a long way, one from Manila, the other from Hong Kong, contributed by Shelton visitors from these faraway places. During the Forest Festival as many as 200 visiting boats may be tied to the Shelton docks. The club serves breakfast to the visitors both Saturday and Sunday and provides reserved grand stand seats for the Paul Bunyan parade. A Saturday night dance winds up the festivity. Seasonal highlights are an early summer cruise, beginning with a moonlight drift on Hammersley Inlet, a Labor Day weekend vruise, climaxed by a gala dinner at Harbor, and an annual oyster and ham dinner at the clubhouse. Winter frost-bite cruises by groups of four b, ats test their skippers' foul weather skill. Other activities are a fishing derby on opening day, a season-ending cruise to Gig Harbor climaxed by a gala dinner, plus frost-bite cruises when groups of four boats test their skippers' foul weather skill. The Shelton club's distinctive burgee is a white Christ- mas tree on a green field. : :,~< :: :~ /;~ :;:if? ~:~;i,'~)~5!
