July 9, 2006 Fall Creek
The announcement
This weekend we’re going to do one of my favorite and beautiful places—Fall Creek in Felton. This is a moderate to hard hike, depending on which route we take. And we’ll decide the route when we know who is coming. Plan on 3 hours for a moderate hike, and nearly 5 if we do the hard hike. We’ll have a snack on the trail and lunch at a restaurant if we do the moderate hike, or lunch and a meal afterwards if we do the hard hike. We leave here at 9 and start the hike around 9:45 to 10.

The hike
Last Sunday’s hike was at one of my favorite places in the bay area. The temperature was pretty good, and there was a fair amount of water still flowing in Fall Creek. Meeting up with Ruth again is always a treat—I can always learn a lot of interesting new things from her. We’re hoping to see her again when we do a kayak trip in her neck of the woods in a couple of weeks. We also plan on coming back to Fall Creek in a few weeks and perhaps trying one of the few remaining bits of trail that we haven’t trodden yet.

Kathy discovers a large cache of mushrooms. Something to think about when we have lunch later.

One thing about the group is we always have a good time. Sometimes a really good time.

“Don’t do it!”, Peggy cries, “You’ll fall into the deep canyon”.

After the hike, food. In this case, it’s also Joanne’s birthday (or near enough).
