|I'm happy all we see are trillium on the Skiumah Creek Trail.|
|Up the Skiumah Creek Trail.|
Why is the lake so low? Why are the banks so tangled with logs? And where does the trail come out? We find no answers.
It is still early when we arrive back at the trailhead. So we head up to the Stanton Lake Trail (#146) which is not much further up the road. However, the forest around Stanton Lake is a whole nother world. Smaller denser trees but more open understory. A much bigger lake with more yellow of glacier lilies.
I’ve only been here a short time, but already I am longing to stay here. I want to walk these trails over and over and watch them change. I think I will find answers to some of my questions here.
