This weekend’s hike is one of my favorites thus far. It didn’t feel like Washington, but instead a lush, tropical paradise. Large rocks, fallen trees and a mossy waterfall split in two look even better when you’re blazed at Boulder River.
Andrea and I started our hike bright and early. Early arrival meant fewer people and soft light. We loaded our backpacks with swimsuits, hot shorts and sunnies. It’s a relatively easy hike, so no worries about wearing off makeup.
