Tahkenitch Creek Exploratory

Sunday, May 21, 2017
Leader: Tom Rundle
Hike: 7 miles, 840 ft (Moderate)

I told the hikers there was no need to bring their stream crossing shoes because we were not crossing Tahkenitch Creek. As it turned out, we encountered about a dozen swamp bogs covering the trail and most of them were knee-deep or higher. We had to cross most of them in both directions, so we did the equivalent of about 20 stream crossings and some of us got very wet. This is a hiking crew I will never forget because everyone waded through bravely and cheerfully without the slightest complaint. However, most of the trail was beautiful with wildflowers and pine forest. We had lunch on a foggy beach, visited Three Mile Lake, returned on the dune trail and waded through the bogs a second time the get back to the trail head.

Members: Tom Rundle, Brian Popowsky, Rachelle Masin, Darko Sojak. Nonmembers: Pam Symond.
