May 17, 1998
Tire Mountain became Kentucky Falls, 12 miles became five, and Saturday became Sunday.
Just a few minor adjustments led to a most pleasant, very wet day.
As usual, the drive into the trailhead was an adventure in itself.
(A bear shared the road with me on a scouting trip a week earlier!)
The rain was gentle and after a week of the wet stuff, the falls roared.
Although the sun came out occasionally during lunch, the trees continued to drip.
It was a lovely hike, though.
My sincere thanks to Elliot for driving and members Rita Johnson, Mary Millman,
Nola Shurtleff and Elliot Aronin; and non-members Lynette Boone and Janet Smythe for
sharing my first hike this season. A some-sorta-leader, Sharon Ritchie.
