Larison Creek

April 9, 2006

The rain was cooperative, falling while we were driving, both there and back, but apart from a brief shower during the lunch stop, we stayed dry while hiking. The first 1.5 miles of the trail follow deep, green (think pea soup) Larison Cove, before turning into old growth forest. Then the trail follows along Larison Creek, lovely as it babbles over rocks, and with the recent rains, the moss and lichen are plump and lush. Three fallen trees were no obstacle for we Obsidians nor for the 5 mountain bikers we encountered through the day. For entertainment during the lunch stop at the crossing of the creek before it heads uphill out of the canyon, we were amused to watch 2 bikers carry their bikes across a slick, downed tree.

A peaceful setting for a pleasant hike.
