Fall Creek Mountain Climb – August 2015

fall creek mountain

The annual “birthday climb” of Fall Creek Mountain, over by Feeley and Carr lakes, happened this year on 8/23.   We had ten participants, and everyone made it to the top followed by a refreshing swim in Island Lake afterwards.  Along with Kate and I, we had Stephen & Janelle, Mike & Vicky, Nan, Patrick, Alan and Kaye.  My little P&S lumix camera died before the swim so no pics of that.  It was a gorgeous day and possibly the best trip yet.  I have been climbing Fall Creek Mtn since 1999 and its always a new adventure.

  1. Hi Geoff
    Looks like some really beautiful country, but very rough mountain climbing. Pictures you took are crystal clear; however, all people are a bit hard to see because everyone is so far from the camera lens. I guess its not a problem for you because you know who everyone is in each photo. The day looks pristine, crystal clear with no visible smoke or haze from all of the California fires. Sure the P&S Lumix died, hahaha, right before the nude swimming!! Good line Geoff, very believable!

    1. No nude swimming this time bro. But since we all are getting old, I did hear from the women, no photos please! Actually they all look pretty darn good. Grandmas ain’t what they used to be.

  2. Geoff, I think you all are very adventurous. That mountain climb looks very challenging to say the least.
    I’m glad to see there was a pole and flag at the top where you all made it.
