Andrea's adventures on the trail…

Greenwater Lakes

on May 31, 2013

Having been sick for almost 3 weeks, I was going to implode if I didn’t get out and hike, just something simple but beautiful to ease back into the swing of things.  Greenwater Lakes is the perfect spot for that!  Not too far up Hwy 410, several miles down a paved forest service road, is a little slice of heaven. The trail was fairly muddy, but to be expected after the rain we’ve had this past week. The river was flowing beautifully, and we did get rained on but, hey, that’s Western Washington State for you…

The bridges along this trail are beautiful. And we hit the blooming of the Calypso orchids at just the right time, they were showing off. Still hard to think that there are native terrestrial orchids that grow wild here in this climate – I look forward to seeing them every year.

Last but best, I got to spend time with my favorite hiker-buddy Frani, and meet 3 new friends. Hopefully there will be many many more hikes with this great group of ladies!
