Opal Creek

June 20, 2006

In my opinion, Opal Creek is the epitome of the best in Oregon hiking. It has amazingly beautiful water (all different shades of green, as you might expect), a bridge over a 60 foot gorge, the remnants of Merten Mill, waterfalls, an old growth grove, the old "town" of Jawbone Flats (now an old-growth study center), and of course, Opal Pool. The weather was perfect, the trail easily traveled. We saw just one butterfly, but it was the size of a small bird.
