What a beautiful emerald green color in this river. Many of the rocks are light blue to give this effect. I hiked the Siouxon Trail to the Chinook Trail, and crossed Chinook Creek below the falls. I then traversed downstream on the north side of Siouxon to Wildcat Creek. Instead of taking the trail, I had a delightful creek walk right up the Wildcat creekbed. Lovely grottos and little slides until I got to the base of the lower tier of Wildcat Falls. Enjoyed my lunch watching a dipper. I then had to cross back over Siouxon in thigh deep freezing cold water- YIKES!!!
