Kentucky Falls

October 6, 2007

Though we hiked under a threat of showers, Mother Nature held off until we had climbed out of our deep canyon hike. Everything was green and beautiful in the rainforest, and though the falls were low, they were still lovely. Upper Kentucky Falls, in particular, was divided into multi-tiered lacey spills. We found the trail in good shape, with only a few muddy stretches. The large single-log bridge looks decrepit, with its railing half rotted and torn off, but it felt very solid underfoot. Nobody had any trouble with three Jims and two Carols and one Caryl! A post-trip visit to Alphbit was in order for two of the three carloads of hikers, and I’m pleased to report that the strawberry-rhubarb pie, with or without ice cream, still went down easy — as did coffee, tea, soup and hot chocolate!

Hikers were members: Jean Coberly, Jim Duncan, Sharon Duncan, Pat Esch, Jim Floyd, Kathleen Floyd, Jim Fritz, Marshall Kandell, Carol Petty, Barb Revere (leader), Julia Richardson and Caryl Smartt; and nonmembers: Carol Anderson and Lynne Tracy.
