8 AM departure from Eagleridge. Reconvened at the Shell station at Jim’s on the corner of Highway 5 and Clearwater Valley Road. Final Party: Anne-Marie Brown, Bill and Gloria Melnychuk, Celia Visscher, Derek Chambers, Diane Hopp, Doerte Pavlik, Glenn McBride, Larry Citra, Nigel Hemingway, Sharon Jensen and Sue Wolfe.
In order to catch the weather, we convoyed first to Helmcken Falls, then back to Dawson Falls and the Mushbowl. Once finished there, with photography and lunch, back we went to Third Canyon (except for Diane and Anne-Marie who proved to be better weather predictors then the rest of us), then Spahats Falls. Those of us who had spent time at Third Canyon arrived at Spahats just in time for a thunderstorm accompanied by torrential rain, making photography difficult if not downright impossible.
But a final stop, at the DQ in Clearwater for ice cream treats, provided some consolation.
