Trip Report Roundup: WTA Members On Wildflowers, Snowshoeing Conditions and Nesting Birds
Members make our work, including our website and trip reports happen. For Member Appreciation Day, a few went above and beyond to file trip reports on the lastest spring conditions.
Last weekend, we celebrated our members and their incredible contributions to our work. Our website, trip report and mobile app are all supported by member donations. As part of Member Appreciation Day, we invited members to submit trip reports with the hashtag #MemberAppreciation.
Here are some of the latest spring conditions in trip reports from the hiking members who power our work!
Umtanum Ridge Crest - near Yakima
Wishfulwanderer took a friend for their first overnight trip, starting at the Umtanum rec area and ending at the Yakima Skyline trailhead. They shared some beautiful photos from their trip.
Catherine Creek Natural Arch - Columbia Gorge
Sunrise Creek, always a great trip reporter to follow for early season wildflowers, enjoyed the first signs of spring on the Catherine Creek Natural Arch trail. As birds are starting to nest in the area, they shared a couple of additional tips on how to help protect wildlife this time of year.
Cashmere Canyons Preserve - Central Cascades
Climber Keith sought out good hiking weather and hiked the Cashmere Canyons Preserve. They got a nice view of the Enchantments and saw many deer running around.
Nordic Pass Hyak - Snoqualmie Region
Ups n Downs went snowshoeing this past weekend at Nordic Pass. They got to practice their pathfinding skills!
ToddlerTrekking got out around their neighborhood for a nice walk. They said the nice weather and spring flowers make the spring allergies bearable.
Sol Duc Falls - Olympic Peninsula
Kbd05c visited Sol Duc Falls. They reported that the trail still had a couple icy patches and recommended bringing hiking poles.
Lime Kiln Trail - North Cascades
Hamabear got out on the Lime Kiln Trail with their dog. They said there’s a couple downed trees on the trail, but the weather was so enjoyable for this spring conditioning hike.
We love seeing the adventures of members and trip reporters. Thanks to everyone who wrote up a trip report. And thank you for supporting WTA!
