After our huge snow year, the mountains are coming alive with picturesque streams.
Denny Creek near Snoqualmie Pass is a great example. This tumbler is looking fantastic as last-winter’s white stuff dissolves into liquid energy.
Avalanche lilies are just starting to bloom along the trail. Accompanied by his daughter, SkiZer pounded out a five-miler up to the upper Denny Creek basin before high-country snow turned us around.
Easy access, great views and a gorgeous stream — just what you want from a quick mountain escape.
