With 5 waterfalls under our belt in 2 days we decided to find the
Little Roaring Creek Falls was Waterfall Chasers. On our way
to what we thought was the trailhead we saw a jack rabbit crossing the
road. The instructions we were following to this fall mentioned
"bushwhacking" so you can see Scott is ready for anything. We
found what we thought was the trailhead and against my better judgment
started down the side of the mountain on what was CLEARLY not a trail.
It was straight down!! The mosquitoes were fierce. Scott did
get to use his knife for bushwhacking! As he "cleared the way for
me" (really just knocking debris in my path) we made it down the side of
the mountain to the river - creek - water?? There was not any
waterfall. Darkness was approaching and we were getting eaten
alive by mosquitoes. Backpacks heavy and full of everything BUT
bug spray. We decided to head back up to the top which was even
more strenuous! This hike almost killed me. I couldn't stop
to rest because of the mosquitoes. We really started to get concerned
when we saw what appeared to be bear tracks. I was never so glad
to reach the top and still alive. On the way back down the road we
stopped at a bridge with pretty cascades. Scott being the
scrambling pro that he had become decided to take off and scramble on up
the creek. Again I waited for him. It was about to be dark.
I saw a sad, sad Scott walking back towards me. He had fallen not
once but twice in the creek and completely submerged his new 5 day old
camera! (I think I did get some pretty photos at this little
place.) We need rest!!
