Fall Creek Trail
January 14, 1984
Bundled against the cold, our group of five members and five nonmembers hiked
the lower five miles of the Fall Creek Trail Saturday morning.
The freezing weather firmed up the muddy sections of trail but made stream
crossings hazard-ous: bridges and logs were slick with frost.
There were also some trail sections in need of repair and a few downed
trees, but we took all of chose obstacles tit stride—heck, after all, we are
Our pace was leisurely (we stopped from time to time to investigate interesting
aspects of trail-side natural history); but sufficiently strenuous to invoke after
only a few miles a chorus of pleas for a lunch break.
Our stop was brief, however, for though the sun was shining in a cloudless sky, we
were not warm.
We ended our hike, with the assistance of K. C. Kraft, at Bedrock Campground.
Hikers were nonmembers Mara Brock, Jeanie Holmes, Virginia Prouty, Gaynor Turner,
and Carole Wayne, and members Ted Castell, Joan Keigher, K. C. Kraft,
and leaders Margaret Hadaway and George Jobanek.
