Grizzly Peak and Lost Creek Falls 4-11-18

Photos by Francie and Keeley

Eleven of us undertook the Grizzly Peak hike with a forecast of 100% rain.  It was cold and a constant breeze, but the views were amazing and no rain.  From the top, we could see the storms coming over the Mt. Ashland area looking southwest and patches of blue sky looking north east.  The first quarter of the hiking trail had a lot of solid ice on the path and is steep, but all managed to stay on track with only a couple of minor falls.  Given the length of the hike (5.25 miles) and the weather, we made it back to the cars for lunch.

Then four of us decided to explore Lost Creek Falls.  It turned out to be a great adventure and spectacular views of the falls.  There were a few sections where the downed trees created a challenge, but we all made it under the great leadership of our social chairman.  Lost Creek was really flowing (thus spectacular falls), but we were able to cross the creek several times with ease.  The combination of the two hikes will join our annual portfolio in the future.  Refreshments were taken at Caldera Brewing.
