Cherry Creek Falls

Foxgloves

Foxgloves

We took a little hike today up to a beautiful waterfall.  Cherry Creek Falls is just a short drive east of the town of Duvall, WA.  My friend Meagan had recently posted some photos from the falls and I decided it would be the perfect destination for a mid-week excursion.  I researched the directions and discovered that, unlike many high mountain hikes in the Cascades where you basically follow one single trail, this route followed a series of paths and old logging roads through the forested foothills.  Careful route finding was gonna be required.  So naturally I passed the trail instructions to Susan.

The only thing thicker than the foxgloves were the mosquitos and biting flies.  But as long as one kept moving they only drove you partially crazy.

The hike was about 5 miles, and we didn’t see any other people until we were on our way back out.

Wouldn’t this be a great place to splash in on a hot summer day.

That’s about it for this report.  We trudged back to the car and headed home.  Thanks Meagan for planting the idea for this hike in my noggin.    Kat
