Fall Creek

March 29, 2007

Fall Creek was a good place to be on this clear sunny day. Signs of spring were everywhere: fresh moss and lichen, fiddleheads rising through last years ferns, leaves about to unfold and wildflowers in bloom. We recognized spring beauty, spring queen, trillium and the bright yellow of the skunk cabbage blossom. Some of us even tasted newly opened oxalis leaves. The almost clear water of the creek rushed along swiftly and we enjoyed the aqua colors of the deep pools. A dipper was spied on a rock before flying downstream. As expected the trail was muddy and there was one spot where large trees had fallen across the trail making for tricky negotiations to get under them. The new, clean rest rooms at the Dexter Reservoir covered bridge was a good place to stop as the Dolly Varden rest rooms were closed.

Participants were non-member Carol Anderson, members Kevin Clarke, Myron Cook, Margot Fetz, Kathryn Golly, Doris Jones, Robert Jones, Beth Kodama, Barbara Morgan, Margaret Prentice (leader), Pat Soussan. Thanks to Pat Soussan and Bob Jones for being the additional drivers.
