April, 2015

Sat.Apr.4th.2015.New It’s that time of year to see the desert in bloom at Catherine Creek. A nice, classic, desert hike at east end of the gorge. Waterfalls, flowers and geocaches and enormous basalt arch. We’ll try to get at least 4 miles in. Maybe as much as 400’ gain. (55 m. from L&C SP) Call Seth at 503-522-7205. Note: Last time we were by the arch, we saw a rattlesnake so keep an eye out. Lynn

Sat.Apr.11th.2015.New Let’s welcome our newest guide-in-training as we hike a 4.6 m. gentle loop from Lucia Falls to Moulton Falls, crossing a scenic, arched bridge and visiting Big Tree Falls along the way, then back. The last time we were here on a wet, Spring day, we watched salmon jumping the falls. Afterward, we’ll drive up the road to see Sunset Falls and try to find Horseshoe Falls. (47 miles from Gateway TC) Call Lynn 503-668-8950 or Robert 360-513-9244.
