Tamolitch Falls

July 30, 1978

The group from town met the leader and another group at McKenzie Bridge Store right on schedule. We all arrived at the trailhead about 9:45 a.m. The first mile was on a new part of the McKenzie River Trail through forest and across two new bridges. The last mile was over lava, no trail at all. We stopped often to see the many beautiful views of the McKenzie River. It was quite a climb over the river bed and down to the pool where we had lunch. Kind of rough, but all thought it tab well worth the trip to see this beautiful clear pool and its bluish green color. Was rather warm on the return trip so we stopped to refresh ourselves by one of the streams that flows into the McKenzie. Everyone said it was one of their best trips. Moss covered lava hoppers were Jeanne, Pat & Charlie Eddy, Jim & Jeff Giulietti, Anne Montgomery, Bonnie Ledford, Marian Mathews, Dorothy Medill, Joyce Mitchell, Art Porter, Anne Raftree, Lois Schreiner, Bob Walden, Jim Wood, & Lonnie & leader Carol Bourgerie. (Editor note—Tamolitch Falls is dry due to rerouting of river through a tunnel when Carman-Smith dam was constructed down stream.)
