How did you all approach Green? Via Teneriffe or Bessemer or the more direct but officially forbidden way?

The latter - Sitka Spruce/Absolute Last Promontory. Not enough snow to go up the Superhikr route. Well, I guess there was nothing preventing us from doing that, but it didn't sound fun. And this way actually felt pretty "Type 1 Fun" the whole time.

Spent Tuesday enjoying a sun-filled afternoon looking for early wildflowers on the Mission Creek network of mountain bike and dirt bike trails. First trillium of the year for me.
Evidence of recent snowmelt
So nice to walk in the sunshine. Left a rainy day behind on the west side!
A few yellow bells higher up.
A sure sign spring is on its way.
An unexpected bonus!
I love tall ponderosa in the late afternoon light.

Nice to go to the dryside. Did you happen to pick up any ticks?

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,I took the one less traveled by. And that has made all the difference. Robert Frost

No ticks. I havenít had problems with them on this network of trails before, maybe they donít like dirt bikes.

Not a lot of hiking on this particular trip... A return visit to Steliko. We went two years ago with my oldest. We were back this year with my youngest. I excitedly rigged my pulk harness to my bike trailer to haul all the extra kiddo stuff and then we found out the gate was open. I guess my insanity test will have to wait. cool.gif Spent Friday/Saturday night. Meandered up Steliko ridge on Saturday. The weather was perfect!
Way more fun than pulling a bike trailer.

Paid a rare visit to the I 90 corridor in search of an alpine trail with less snow to trudge through than those around Highway 2 which are closer to home. Upper Granite Lake looked appealing, and thanks to our later than alpine start of 1:30, we had the lake to ourselves. Puffy clouds creating interesting shadows and a rising half moon made for a beautiful late afternoon ambiance.

14 Miles in last weekend up the Suiattle and Gamma to about 4,500'. Made it further than I expected without snowshoes. Love that Forest!
