This is the second time I’ve done this hike, and once you get past the initial clearcuts, it is a beautiful hike. I went a little farther this time, going past the big creek crossing, but I ended up turning around a little ways up the trail since it started to mist and I didn’t really want to hike in the rain. It worked out OK, and I had a great time. This area has LOTS of REALLY big trees and the creek is a constant companion, either by seeing it, or by hearing it. This day, the creek was roaring due to all the rain we have had.
A beautiful day in the woods!
