Little North Santiam
May 19, 2005
Three Obsidians and two non-members braved the rain to enjoy the roaring
Little North Santiam river, forest of old grow, lush ferns and foliage,
scattered rhodys, few birds and a forked horn deer in velvet.
The many streams joining the river were overflowing with the recent heavy rains.
Our lunch stop view was cascading triple falls across the river.
We finished the 4½ mile hike to drive down to the river on the opposite side
to see the three emerald green pools connected by waterfalls.
The final highlight of this outing was the mile walk into Henline falls.
Wow, what a spectacular sight!!
Well worth the effort.
This is a hike that could be done year round and enjoyed each time.
Thanks to Wayne Deeter for bringing up the group from Eugene.
