Autumn Hikes

Published November 12th, 2023 in UW Blogs

Some friends and I have enjoyed some great autumn 2023 hikes. We hiked in the beautiful Mt Thielsen Wilderness to Tipsoo Peak in the snow. Wolf Creek Falls. Hiked some good trails at lake of the woods to see a few waterfalls including Hemlock Falls with superb mushroom and delightful fungi. A visit to salmon spawning on the South Umpqua River. Outdone by the undisturbed old growth forest hike on the Cow Creek Trail. Enjoy the photos. Diana
