Ascent Trip Report

On the way home from dropping my wife off at the Eugene Airport, I set my GPS for the coordinates of Cox Butte and easily found and stopped at the Cemetery Butte cemetery on the way. One other vehicle was inside, but they soon left, and I found it interesting to read gravestones going back to the early 19th Century. The blackberries along the fence were also ripe and quite enjoyable on this terribly hot day. Cox Butte was clearly visible to the northeast, and I wrote up a report for that climb, too. It's surprising to me that no one else was listed as having been to this Cemetery's high point, since it's so easily accessible, besides being close to populated areas like Eugene and Corvallis.
