Salt Creek Falls/Eagle Rock
February 10, 2007
Who would have believed! Weather forecast was quite dubious, however, six of us persevered and were rewarded for our efforts with a successful outing.
We began with Plan A to snowshoe at Salt Creek Falls. However, at that destination, rain was substantial. So, we continued on to Plan B — Gold Lake SnoPark. The higher 1000 feet, to 5,000 elevation, made a BIG difference. Rain was now snow. We snowshoed to Westview Shelter, and on to Eagle Rock and a view of Odell Lake. As the day progressed, snow changed to clouds. By the time we had our picnic lunch, the sun was trying to peak through, and we saw spots of blue sky.
Many thanks to Jim and Kathleen Floyd for having room for all of us in their car. And, welcome to Ken Augustson for completing his third trip with Obsidians, and eligible for membership.
Participants were: Ann-Marie Askew, Jim and Kathleen Floyd, Barb Revere, Ken Augustson and Barbara Bruns, leader.
