Three Trips to Falls Creek, So Many Wanted to Go
We had so much fun hiking to Falls Creek Falls that we repeated the trip two days later so that more could go on this fun winter snowshoe or hike.
It did turn out to be a hike, although a few wore yaktrax for the icy parts, particularly the beginning quarter mile that is uphill (and downhill on the way back). Otherwise, there was little snow, but plenty of water and mud to avoid along the way.
The falls didn't disappoint, with frozen springs along the cliffs as well. And no ticks yet! KuntZ lost her ear muffs but the Friday group found them! But the big find of the day was stromatolites!
We left Great Falls at 8:30 on day and 7:30 the other, so some could get back early. We arrived home by 3:30 the first trip, then by 2:15 and 3 p.m. the second group.
Who went: 1st group: Katie, Randi, Kuntzie, Carol, Doreen, June; 2nd group: Katie, Shelley, Gail, Jo Ann, Deb; 3rd group: Beth, Carol, Roni, Deb, Judy, Brenda, Kalah
