McDowell Creek Falls

Saturday, January 12, 2013
Leader: Janet Jacobsen
Hike: 4.5 miles, 650 ft (Easy)

Outfitted with sunglasses and warm clothing, waterfall and Mexican food aficionados savored the sunny day. Cameras clicked away at Royal Terrace Falls, Crystal Pool, and Majestic Falls at McDowell Creek Park. We stopped for lunch at Los Dos Amigos Hacienda in Sweet Home where the owner greeted us with chips and salsa. The after lunch stop was Lower Soda Creek Fall at Cascadia Park. Thanks to Jim Whitfield, our historian, who led us on scenic byways and shared stories from his youth. Check out the Gallery Photo Album on the website to see what you missed!
