We met at Albertson’s parking lot on a beautiful Friday morning.
Luckily, the reports on Willamette Pass/Hwy. 58 promised clear roads.
So I was able to take my non-snow-friendly van.
We left from the Salt Creek Falls SnoPark at 11:00 a.m.
The snow was very icy and presented a few tricky traverses on the hard pack.
After a foiled attempt to reach the base of the Lower Diamond Falls due to a treacherous log bridge
any fool would know not to cross, we had peaceful warm lunch at the Upper Falls overlook.
Back to the cars by 2:30 p.m.
Three happy and more experienced snow-shoers had an uneventful drive home.
Obsidians Max Brown, Genie Currier and leader Peggy Lee Mathes all had a great time.
