We originally intending on hiking Franklin Falls but due to road work and bad signage it was hard to find. We instead stumbled upon an upper waterfall that had no trail access. We found a way to climb down to the beautiful clear waters.

One of the gretest day hikes in North America is the Boulder River trail. It's an 8.6 mile out and back hike through old growth rain forest. On one rainy day on this trail I saw at least a dozen separate waterfalls.

We have driven through various areas of the Mount Baker - Snoqualmie National Forest. Its very pretty, with forested lands, water ways, and of course Mount Baker. This time we drove through a section of the forest on our way to Leavenworth.

We enjoyed this drive through this beautiful forest on our visit to MOUNT SHUKSAN. We really enjoyed the picturesque Nooksack River which has three Forks and we had visited the South fork valley and it is really most beautiful and scenic.
