On May 15th 2021, we will be going to First Creek which is east of Cle Elum and part of the Teanaway formation. Meet 9:30 AM in the Cle Elum Safeway parking lot near the gas pumps (exit 84 – 702 W 1st St, Cle Elum), about 1.5 hour drive from Renton. We’ll leave there at 9:45, head east on Hwy 970, and park at the First Creek parking area (about 10 miles away – just 1/2 mile north of 97/970 junction).
Group will leave from the First Creek parking lot about 10:10 AM!
Agates, Jasper, Geodes, and Crystal – Bring digging and hard rock tools, buckets, and sturdy shoes. Appropriate clothing for weather, lunch, drinking water and snacks. Bug spray for ticks. This is a 2 mile hike on a logging road with 5 moderate ups and downs and there could still be snow and/or mud on the trail in May. A wagon or jogging cart is handy for carrying tools and material.
