Confluence

of Sweet Creek and Beaver Creek.

  

We hiked from the Homestead trailhead up to Sweet Creek Falls and back, then drove up to the trailhead to see the confluence of Sweet Creek and Beaver Creek. That was a challenge of a trail, real slow going. We managed to wipe all of the rainwater off of the sopping wet grasses onto our pants but more importantly, that rain had brought out every banana slug, black snail and big reddish newt in the woods and put them in the trail, and each had found the perfect habitat to blend in. Or that was how it seemed. Watch where you step!

Packed up and left Bandon, raining again. Bad day for the beach, and the dunes we'd planned on hiking, but it should be a good day for waterfalls. Waterfalls like the rain...

So we turned inland to visit Sweet Creek and it's waterfalls. When a desert dweller sees a waterfall, they shoot it. Doesn't matter how small it is, it's a waterfall and that's a rare sight and the desert rat must get a picture. Or six. Really slows things down on a nice creek hike like this was :^)
