wildflower hike july 13th

35.00

Last winter’s snow created optimal conditions for this summer’s wildflower bloom. Join us with outdoorswoman Shannon Douglas on an easy hike through the wildflowers and berries of the Cascades.

Indian paintbrush, meadowsweet, Nootka rose and fireweed blanket the slopes between bushes of high-mountain huckleberries, alpine salmonberries, and the occasional wild strawberry. We’ll learn plant histories and culinary uses as we nibble along the way, with a stop for a refreshing huckleberry beverage and snack..

Marvel at swallow-tailed butterflies, broad-tailed hummingbirds, and blue dragonflies feeding on summer nectar against a backdrop of towering peaks. This is an easy (Level 1) hike with a well-maintained trail with some rocks and roots. The hike is 2 miles round-trip with 300 feet of elevation gain.

Shannon Douglas is a photographer, gardener, explorer, and founder of Honest Magazine. She loves getting her hands dirty while making things more beautiful.
