Salt Creek Falls

June 18, 2005

Six hikers left South Eugene High School parking lot at 8:00 a.m. for a “DATE WITH NATURE”. Salt Creek is one of my favorite hikes, more challenging in the winter but fewer mosquitoes and crowds in the summer. Our first stop was at the 286 ft. Salt Creek Falls, which never fail to provide a spectacular show both winter and summer. Our next stop was the famous “Too Much Bear Lake” we were very happy no bears were around. “Must have been out for lunch”. We did not see the beautiful rhododendrons blooms, but the other plant and wildflowers were just as grand. We then made our trek down the steep trail for a power lunch and photos at the bottom of the magnificent 100 foot Diamond Creek Falls. After lunch with renewed energy and zestfulness, we continued with the return leg of the hike. At the Vivian Lake junction, Vivian Lake seemed possible, but at the thought of blisters and other excuses we all decided we should save that hike for another day. We returned to our car blessed with another “DATE WITH NATURE”.
