Drift Creek Falls

Pics O' the Day

I really, really wanted to hike the Drift Creek Falls Trail, in the Hebo Ranger District, near Lincoln City, Oregon today. I tried twice. The first time, the rain came down so hard, I couldn't see the twisty, curvy road. Then, it looked like it was clearing, so into the forest and up the mountain I drove again, until I encountered an inch of non-melting, standing hail on the road. As my puny Prius tires began slip, sliding away, I thought better of it, turned around, and hightailed it back down to the beach. Going down, in ice, is much harder than up.

Later, at Proposal Rock Inn, I eavesdropped on the conversation of the front desk clerk when she excused herself to answer the phone. She was waiting for a call from South Africa, you see, from her grandson, wishing her Happy Birthday, on her 91st! Yes, she was adorable.

I didn't bring the dogs with me this trip. I wanted to get out the first week on my own and see how it goes. They'd so dig this. I need to bring them next week.
