Speak, Creek Freak




As a lifelong creek freak, I enjoyed Barry Evans' latest column re: Six Rivers ("Field Notes," May 3). Please note, that while the Klamath "originates" in Oregon, the Smith (which originates around Youngs Peak on the Del Norte/Siskiyou County border) has major tributaries originating in Curry County Oregon (i.e. Rowdy Creek, North Fork, Diamond Creek (both Main and North Forks), and Shelly Creek (barely). Baldface and Chrome Creeks (tributary to the North Fork) originate around Chetco Peak (Kalmiopsis Wilderness Area), at least 10 miles inside Oregon).

Thank you.
