WTA Pro Tip
It's spring! But in Washington, that means a lot of different things: sun, rain, snow, clouds - anything could greet you on your next hike. Pack accordingly.
Snow remains in a lot of popular places (like at Mount Rainier). Be aware that melting snow creates unstable snow bridges.
And, while wildflowers in low-level places like the Columbia River Gorge are on their way out, at higher elevations others are just getting started. That also means ticks are out.
Always check trip reports before you head out. Bonus points if you write one after your next hike!
Fall means incredible colors, weird fungus and mild temperatures. Find a trail to take in the sights as winter approaches.
Even when it's snowy in the mountains you can usually find a dry trail. Find hikes 30 minutes away from your nearest city, or further afield.
