Fall Creek

October 20, 2002

It was overcast with a bit of drizzle but 16 folk assembled in the parking lot, four cars went off to the Dolly Varden parking area. There we piled into three cars leaving one behind and drove to road 1828 for the 9.3 mile hike downstream. The rain held off, the temperature was right for hiking and the trail was relatively dry. We stopped frequently to look at mushrooms—Joe Neal was collecting and providing information—and also to admire the creek, the rocks and vine maples. We lunched on some rocks overlooking the creek at Bedrock campground. After lunch we made a short side trip to the Indian Cave. We were down to Dolly Varden shortly after 3 pm. This is a neat fall hike with the yellow and golds of the maples and other trees complementing the creek. The large group stayed together nicely permitting much conversation. Enjoying the afternoon were nonobsidians Dick and Lucy Rayle and Bill and Mary Ellen Loughlin, and members Sheila Ward, Ruth Romoser, Marilyn Waff, Anne Bonine, Margaret Prentice, Marshall Kandell, Max Brown, Joe Neal, Sharon Thomas, Elliot Aronin, Joanne Ledet and [leader] Ed Lichtenstein.
