Tamolitch Falls

June 14, 1980

This hike was originally planned as a car shuttle, going in at the Falls and ending at the power station at Trail Bridge; however, since it had been raining the week before we decided it might be toe muddy and slippery to come down the rock cliff above the falls. Instead, we walked up to the falls from Trail Bridge and back, a pleasant 5 mile hike. Actually, the falls is now dry, but what remains is a beautiful deep blue pool appearing, seemingly, from nowhere out of the rock. The trail is developed about half way, then there are only stakes to mark the way. The lower part follows the river through some very damp areas, heavy with fern and mosses. The next mile winds through an old lava flow, now covered with moss and a variety of wild flowers and vegetation.

Good rainy day hikers were Carol and Lonnie Bourgerie, Mary Bridgeman, Al and Mary Jane Crocker, Kalindi Devi Dasi, Leona Mattson (leader), Tillie Merritt, Edythe Pearson, Anne Raftree, Barbara, Brandt, and Julie Scherer, and Paula Vehrs.
