Geo 1095: April 16, Day 836: Stairway to Sahalie

While the title is a riff on my discovery yesterday of what "Sahalie" means, there is a stairway, or at least a trail, up to the top of the falls here. I've never walked up there, and I think that's something I should change. That trail segment is a minor portion of a trail system that extends from above Clear Lake down to the lower McKenzie Valley. The next major trip I make up here, my goal is the two-mile hike from Carmen Reservoir to Tamolich, or Blue Pool. From Carmen to Tamolich, the river is once again completely underground for most of the year. It then re-emerges at the Blue Pool. This is something I want to see.
