Hurricane Ridge hiking – wildflower report

We hiked this on Sunday Aug 3 and the wildflowers were about peak, I think? There were not all that many, and they looked dry and tired to me, but I am no master gardener. Rainier’s wildflowers are in peak right now (8/18) so perhaps Hurricane is having a delayed peak? In any case – we had a great time hiking around enroute to Kalaloch! Went from bright sun and warmth to a dense, cold fog at Kalaloch. Strange microclimate! But it was a refreshing cool 🙂

A bit narrow on a steep slow - can give vertigo to some folks.
