What a wonderful, sunny day for a hike. The fall colors at Brice
creek were set against the flood of green: conifers, ferns and mosses.
We did the 5.5 mile one way hike with car shuttle. The leader stopped
to admire so much that we got behind schedule. The trail was not yet
muddy. The water level in Brice Creek was low, so the waterfalls were
beautiful. We stopped for a sunny lunch on the rocks a mile before Lund
Park and skipped stones. If the outside world had not been calling, I
think we could have spent all day there. Half the group added a hike to
Lower Trestle Creek Falls while the drivers were shuttling. Enjoying
the hike were eight non-members: Barbara Aten, Roger Reich, Lynn Frost,
Vicki Levine, Debbie Tyler, Connie Pierce, Sheila Gilder, and Don
Klinghammer. Keeping them company were members: Bonnie Richman, Mary
Morrison, Lou Maenz, Ginny Reich and leader, Jim Pierce. Thanks to Lou
and Roger for driving.
