Fall Creek

April 29, 2006

Dazzling sunshine and shirtsleeve temperature enhanced our nine mile hike. Using a car shuttle, we hiked one way east to west along gurgling Fall Creek. Most of the forested trail skirts along musical Fall Creek. Trillium, bleeding hearts and fairy bells were profuse along the entire length. Some of the forest is dotted with old growth and the shadier, moister portions were carpeted with multi shades and textures of green forest-floor flora. A burn area in the mid section doesn't seem to detract much from the hike. We lunched at rushing Slick Creek near a cliff overhang where Native Americans once camped. This hike doesn't offer expansive views, but it is indeed very pleasant and an easy, close-in drive. We all enjoyed the day and the hiking camaraderie.

Thanks to Bob for taking the lead in the first half and Claudia the second while I swept. And mucho thanks to Sherwood and his BIG truck for making the shuttle a snap.

Members: John Agnew, Jane Allen, Zella Andreski, Claudia Arias, LaRee Beckley, Bob Huntley, Sherwood Jefferies, Sue Meyers and Effie Neth, leader.
