Why You Should Go Now
Wildflowers blooming
Hiked into the Upper Enchantments by way of Lake Colchuck and Aasgard Pass. Aasgard is in "good" shape - almost all of the snow is gone, just a couple of short snow fields to get across. This was my first time up Aasgard, and I was surprised by how much of it is on glacial silt and scree - the footing was very loose. It's spring on the upper reaches of the pass, so wildflowers are in bloom. Bugs weren't bad, all things told - plenty of mosquitoes, but not particularly aggressive (full on a meal of mountain goat maybe?). Upper Enchantments are in good shape, mostly snow-free along the trail.

Diablo Lake Trail (Apr 17)

Diablo Lake

North Cascades

Follow the Diablo Lake Trail up and across talus slopes on the flanks of Sourdough Mountain to impressive cascading waterfalls and stunning views. This hike in the North Cascades Institute's backyard makes a great option for an early season hike in stunning North Cascades National Park, much of which is inaccessible during the winter and spring.
