Drift Creek

August 25, 2007

On a perfect August day, a five point bull elk and his two female companions crossed the forest service road just in front of us on our winding drive into the coastal range. That alone would have made our day, but we were blessed again with the sounds of crashing through the undergrowth and the sight of small trees thrashing as a much larger gathering of elk broke cover just below us on the trail into Drift Creek. As we moved further down the trail the evidence was clear that they had left in a hurry. Much broken greenery and hoof gouged trail and embankments suggested a fair sized group that was moving in haste and without caution. Five happy hikers arrived at the magical Drift Creek where we enjoyed lunch, lounging and watching the red crayfish in the clear waters.

Hikers were: Ken Augustson, Larry Dunlap, Art Kearney, Dell Keller and Becky Lipton, leader.
