On Sunday Nov. 1st, we will be going into First Creek.
Meet 9:00 AM at the Cle Elum Safeway near the gas pumps and rest rooms there (exit 84 – 702 W 1st St, Cle Elum). Note the clocks change with “fall back” that early morning. This is about a 1.5 hour drive from Renton. We’ll leave the Safeway at 9:15, 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). We’ll hit the trail about 9:40.
This is a 2 mile hike from the parking lot to get to the dig areas, but it’s a gentle hike on a good road bed and a wagon or jogging cart is handy for carrying tools and material. Let me know if you’re planning on coming.
Agates, Jasper, Geodes, and Crystal – Bring digging and hard rock tools, buckets, and sturdy shoes. Appropriate clothing for weather (dress in layers), lunch, drinking water and snacks.
