Crescent Mountain

June 22, 2008

Thanks to a flexible group — we were able to have three adventures in one day! The trip started as usual: met at SEHS, departed at 8:00 a.m., and arrived at the Crescent Mountain trailhead under blue skies just before 10:00. But then it changed. The first 100 feet of the trail were great then . . . the trail was under snowbanks of up to three feet deep! We traipsed through the snow for just over a mile until we found the collapsed bridge over Maude Creek. Crossed the creek and then opted to turn around. Returned to the cars, ate lunch in the sun — had to be at least 70 degrees! — and made alternate plans. Drove back to the McKenzie River Trail and hiked the “fall loop” to view Sahalie and Koosah Falls gushing with water. Drove a little farther and hiked to mesmerizing temporary water fall into the deep blue Tamolitch pool. Ah…hard to leave. Thanks to a great crew. NOTE: Barb Revere will be leading another hike to Crescent Mountain — on August 17th; — conditions should be better! The great crew was: Daphne James, Barb Revere, Paul Flashenberg, Art Kearney, Jim Pierce (photographer), Charlene Pierce, Denise Butler (photographer), Marianne Camp (trailfinder), Ivan Paskalev (trailfinder), Elle Weaver and Laurie Funkhouser.
