Drove my wife to Leavenworth for another hair appointment today. This time the reason was not wanting to fight Apple Blossom Festival traffic. But, I will accept almost any reason to go to the mountains.
My brother, who lives up the Icicle River, suggested I spend my waiting time hiking up BoundaryButte for a good view of Leavenworth and the Wenatchee River Valley all at once. Turns out he was right. What a nice pleasant two hour hike!
MC- It was quite windy going up but calmed down for the last part of the hike.
GH - Being my first time up there I was not that familiar with the area. I just started where the county road becomes FS road by the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust property. The hike was mostly on old abandoned logging roads. There were some signs put up by the Mt. Home Lodge showing X-country ski trails.
Balsam Root is coming out as well as a lot of other flowers. Also, for you bird watchers out there; I saw a couple of Mt. Blue birds. My brother tells me that is quite rare.
