Since we have been back in Vancouver we have been trying to focus on getting caught up with laundry,house cleaning, correspondence, and so forth. It has been cool and overcast. Most fortunately the heavier rain showers have been occurring at night. According to local weather forecasters this has been a most unusual spring with cooler than normal temperatures and lots of precipitation. However, Marta and Terry, as well as John and myself, determined on Sunday that we would hike on Memorial Day however the weather turned out. So it was a pleasant surprise on Monday when the rain stopped by late morning. We did get some misting during the day, and some dark cloud cover but some bright sunshine did prevail. We took a five mile hike along the eastern fork of the Lewis river. First we did a short hike to see Lucia Falls. It was interesting to consider that it is in these waters and falls where salmon come to to spawn and migrate. It is important that they have an area to rest for the final challenges of their journey. Below is a sign posted near the falls warning people not to enter the waters.
