Dateline:
June 4, 2017
Dry Creek, Olympic National Forest, Lake Cushman
8.4 miles RT

I finally got out of town for an adventure. Between elder care and baby care and really crappy weather, it’s been a long time. Of course there have been other distractions as well: my garden in the meadow, my mother’s gardens at the house, my sister’s garden at the house is still unweeded (damn creeping Jenny), tree trimming, trail clearing, Airbnb (which has been quite successful, meaning lots of laundry and muffin-baking). But today, hiking.

Swiss Family Robinson. The first 1/2 mile the trail goes through private property at the edge of the ONF.

There are several dry creeks, but the title “creek” is not dry. Dry Creek ford. I did not. Ford.
