A perfect day for a fall hike, sunny, cool in the morning and warming
but not hot.
We left at 8:30, established a shuttle and began hiking downstream from
road 1828 by 9:50.
The trail is recovering nicely from the fire of three years ago:
bridges have been repaired or rebuilt including the one at Slick Creek
that was gone the past two years.
There is a fair amount of minor debris on the trail that requires
sliding around or pushing through but nothing serious.
We lunched, as usual, on the rocks overlooking deep pools at Bedrock
The vegetation was often lush and hikers several times remarked upon
“picture post card views” as the sunlight filtered through
the trees and reflected off the water.
Enjoying the day were non-members
