Enchanted Forest 11-1-21

Despite the threatening forecast, 6 AHG hikers braved a hike through the Enchanted Forest in the Applegate and were rewarded with a fun time enjoying the golden Fall leaves.

We came together at the TH at the end of Slagle Creek Road dressed for wet weather but raring to go! We had 2 new hikers who hadn't been there before and one veteran who hadn't been out to the site of the 1993 helicopter crash.

The ground was wet from overnight showers but no wipers were needed on the drive out from Ashland.

As we advanced up the trail layers were removed and rain gear was stowed away as we didn't experience any rain until after the day's hike.

Fall leaves covered the ground like carpet and the giant Maple leaves were spectacular.

We topped off the day's outing with coffee and pie at Pennington Farms.

BTW, your leader played catch up this day trailing the group while assisting my friend Elisabeth with a project to enhance her Friday hike in the Enchanted Forest.....stay tuned.

Just a reminder that all vaxxed AHG members are welcomed to join us on Monday hikes.
