The day started off late but lovely under a gathered skirt of grey clouds, raining softly on and off as we made our way along the fast moving west bank of the Boulder River. A short hike (8.5 miles roundtrip) through towering old growth the forest was lush with myriad greens, a distinct difference from many of the deciduous forest we’d just hiked through on the AT. And the trees are so goddamn tall out here. It’s good to be back in the West…
I love that area! Beautiful
Wonderful pics of those enormous trees! We don’t see those big guys over here in Florida.
The waterfalls along the Boulder River Trail are great! The place has a rainforesty feeling, this is the best time of year to follow that trail.
Y – I was surprised how lush it was this time of year. The Northwest got that green-green.
