Brice Creek - One Way

Saturday, December 3, 2011
Leader: Jim Pierce
Hike: 5.5 miles, 600 ft (Easy)

Lucky 13 hikers fit into three cars on a frosty morning. Above the valley fog there was blue sky and sometimes the sunshine peeked over the ridges. Brice Creek was clear, bubbling and beautiful. The forest is filled with spectacular giants... Firs, hemlocks, Western red Cedar. There were a couple new fallen trees across the trail, but the largest obstacle was a rock slide with more threatening to come down onto the trail.

It was cold, but dry. The moss was stiff from the cold. There were a few places with ground hoarfrost. Most of the group took the side trip to Lower Trestle Creek Falls. Thanks to Nancy for sweeping and Pat and Mike for driving.

Members: Jim Pierce, Susan Sanazaro, Pat Soussan, Sarah Praskievicz, Nancy Whitfield, Barbara Aten. Nonmembers: Norma Bengiat, Michael Quigley, Diantha Hull, Mike Piehl, David Madeira, Jenny Wilson, Chuck Gibson.
