This was one of the MCLandLoper hikes where we are worried about the weatherman's prediction of 70% chance of showers. After much discussion back and forth on our Yahoo Group site we decide to go for it.
Here we are at the trail head after a seventeen mile drive east on HWY 20 and six miles up a former logging road.
Off we go!
A wet time of the year and the fungi are happy.
A very nice trail through logged over land.
Spring flowers are happening.
And then down, down.
Down into a small pocket grove of almost old growth redwood.
And the waterfall comes into view! It is spectacular this time of year.
Interesting root growth covering this rock.
We continue on and use the short-cut back to the logging road and then hike back to the parked cars.
A wee tailgate party for some snackage,
a comparison of cell phone company signal strength and we are out of there. Not one drop of rain during our hike but it was coming down pretty good when we got back to Fort Bragg. I guess we used up the 30% of chance of sun!!
