A short hike to a punchbowl falls on Buller Creek

Buller Creek is a clear mountain stream with a trail that heads to the pass at the top of the valley.
While the pass is a great hike, there is a waterfall partway along that also makes a great endpoint for a shorter day.
We had a forecast of nothing but rain, but it stayed steadily light as we started up the creek.

The first bridge.

There was a prescribed burn in the Buller Creek valley over the summers of 2010-2011, and the trail goes right through the burned areas.

Beautiful colours on the edge of the burn.

After passing through the burned section, a steep hike up the headwall leads to the Buller Creek Falls.

Hiking above the falls for lunch.

On the way down, it started to rain harder, so the jackets and umbrellas came out.
