Silver Creek Falls
May 18, 1974
After waiting 20 minutes for the other six people who signed up but
did not come, we left the parking lot just as it began to rain.
Optimistically, believing the weather man report that the weather will
clear we proceeded undaunted.
However, it did not clear and in fact we were deluged with water the rest
of the day—overhead and underfoot.
Besieged by the environment we were not able to fully appreciate the beauties
of the park and falls and wild flowers, as we would have otherwise.
However, in spite of it all, the glorious beauty of this area won, over the
distaste for the weather, and, we all voted after the return to the cars
that we were glad we had come.
All those waterfalls and wildflowers are indeed an inspiration!
The hardy souls who braved the rain:
Rolfe & Bertha Anderson,
George Peffell (member Seattle Mountaineers),
Hazen & Lorene Bressler.
