Just out from town a very short walk is Gold Creek (click here for approximate map location - look for Gold Creek-Flume Marker) which is another water resource that provides water to the community. Its such a pretty place and they have done a great job of making it accessible to foot traffic. You can walk through the forest on a covered flume or walk on the gravel road that travels along the creek. The road also branches out to the Perserverance Trail which climbs up the backside of Mount Roberts – one of the mountains that our house faces. Here's one of the dams at the flume trailhead.
With all the snowfall there was a lot of water this spring.
And its really loud too! I took this little video with my little pocket camera – it might take a minute or two to load up depending on how fast your internet connection is. Click here to see Video.
