The hike to Evans Creek is my ongoing string of hikes I am continuing to explore the Evans Creek snow caves and how they develop during the late spring thaw:
This day I got nine CT Members to join me on this hike and it was great to share the shear wild beauty of the Evans Creek trail and valley with this great company:
We met up at Fern Crescent at 9:10 a.m. and then proceeded to The West Canyon Park Parking Lot, and from there 9:45 am we were on the trail.
Stu(MrB), Jamey, Ivy (IC), (Deeks), Lynn (Flowing Brook), Mark (Fallguy),Andrea (Andigo),Ron (Skyhawk), and (Shan) ??
Wally (Wildman) had signed up but he had gone ahead, looking forward to his adventure on the high ridge and his many pictures.
My apologies for mixing and forgetting names for the last two young ladies on this trip.

Surprise surprise, Ron Paley (Ronbo) had trekked solo up ahead of us and greeted us just above the snow cave. It was a pleasure meeting you, and many thanks for your assitance.

After completion of the Evans Creek Hike, few hours behind schedule. Lynn, Stu, and Ron joined me for idea #2 for this days hiking, so from West Canyon Parking Lot we drove to the East Canyon Parking Lot, and headed out for the Lower Falls (about 1-1/2 hours return). By this time skies had cleared fully.
