Larison Creek

October 24, 2001

We left Amazon Community Center at around 0830 and drove to Oakridge, stopping at the Ranger Station on the way. Started our hike at about 1000 and decided to leave from the trailhead on Rd. 21. We hiked a little over three miles, stopping along the way to admire the Fall colors. The vine maples were spectacular in red. Had lunch on a sloping log next to Larison Creek and then turned around and retraced our steps back. The sun was out and quite bright. On the way back we came across a dock - one that is well used when the water is higher - and almost had a nap, the sun felt so good. We left by way of Rd. 21, turned left on Rd. 2102 for two miles and then left again on Rd. 101 for about half-a-mile for a great view of the mountains and the canyon where we had just hiked. It was a perfect Fall day for a hike. Thank you to Barb Sutherland for joining me. Gisele Garrity, trip leader.
