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 Boundary Butte 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!

That's a nice area with some great views.  Are the balsam root up?  I was camping there last week and the wildflowers were just coming up.

Did you hike the road or jump on Canyon Crest Trail?  I've never been to the bottom, so wondering where it goes down too.

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.
