Sweet Creek/Beaver Creek Falls

May 7, 2006

Co-leader, Judy Terry, and I had originally planned a hike at Patterson Mountain, but the Forest Service advised us that the road was not open because of snow. So, plan B. We decided on Sweet Creek Falls and it turned out to be a fun decision for 11 of us. Jane Allen, a new member and five other members enjoyed talking with four prospective members: Kathleen and Jim Floyd from California, Fran Nearing from Tennessee and traveler, Margene Kethcart. The day was somewhat inclement, with only slight mist while we were hiking. We enjoyed the walk to the base of Sweet Creek Falls, followed by a picnic lunch along the river. There were many wildflowers: bleeding heart, late trillium, and others unnamed by the group. We continued to the Wagon Road trail head and hiked for a view of the top of Sweet Creek Falls, and then to Beaver Creek Falls. We concluded with soup, cocoa and goodies at Alpha Bits in Mapleton. By then, the rain began in earnest for our drive back to Eugene.

Members: Jane Allen, Barb Bruns (leader), Jim Fritz, Sherwood Jeffries, Laurie Reed, Guy Strahon and Judy Terry (co-leader). Nonmembers: Jim Floyd, Kathleen Floyd, Margene Kethcart and Fran Nearting.
