April 28, 1987: Alder Creek Trail

Today was really a good day. We got pretty far up the Alder Creek Trail. We saw some falls that were pretty neat, and for quite a way above the falls the creek seemed to be moving slowly enough for someone to jump in without worrying about being swept away by the current. It was tempting, let me tell you.

The hike back at the end of the day was really good, too. It was mostly downhill or level, so it wasn’t at all unpleasant. What made it even easier was that we stashed our tools, so we didn’t have that weight to lug home.

We saw some excellent rock work on the trail as well. A tray had been built across a pretty severe gully. It looked really impressive. Now that I think about it, I wish I had gotten a picture. Oh, well. At least I got a picture of the falls.
