A second visit to a great hike. This time it was not raining, so we went further than last time. The trail passes through a coniferous forest with side trails to meadows along a stream. These damp meadows are covered with a wide variety of flowers. The trail is fairly flat until it reaches the base of a long narrow cascade. Then it climbs rapidly to a high basin just above treeline. Here I found more varieties of wildflowers in the open meadow, and still more along the banks of the stream.
