06.26 Source Lake

On day 1 of a record breaking heatwave in the PNW. 6 brave souls escaped the heat and hiked to the source of the Snoqualmie River, Source Lake at 3800′. Last year’s record snowpack still lingered everywhere we looked along the trail. Pockets of snow in the forests and on the trail to maneuver. Hundreds of waterfalls could be seen cascading down from the craggy peaks and many more all around us could be heard in the forest. Multitudes of Trillium and other native fauna brightened the walk. We went right up to the edge of a huge snowfield, dipped our hats in the cold mountain streams, found a shady place to snack and enjoyed conversations with friends.
