Union Creek 5-15-13

Nice day for a walk up Union Creek. Temperatures in the low 60s, dogwoods in bloom and a roaring creek. There is no stream gauge on Union Creek, however we estimated the flow rate at about 1,500 CFM at the falls. The trail was in usual spring condition with some blow down and deadfall, however nothing impassable.

We came back on the Old Growth / Union Creek Spur Trail which is away from the creek and about 1/2 mile shorter.

We celebrated Jim's Day at Becky's after the hike. We also talked about the possibility that Crater Lake feeds Union Creek Springs and Boundary Springs. Turns out the water level of Crater Lake is about 6,180' with Boundary Springs at 5,200' and Union Creek Springs at 6,150'
