Coquelle Trails


Jesse Davis, Coquille Tribe project field research assistant, at what we now believe to be "Eagle Rock," on the headwater divides of Williams River and Lookingglass Creek. This location, along the top of a shear rock wall that stetches for several miles, has an amazing view (on a clear day) of Flournoy Valley, the Umpqua River basin, and the western Cascades to the East; and the headwater basins of the Coos and Coquille rivers to the West. Slide #33 of 36 total in the 2012 Coquelle Trails Powerpoint presentation. October 27, 2011, georeferenced photograph by B. Zybach.
