The main goal of this hike is to see wildflowers in bloom and to enjoy a different landscape on the East Side. The book, Desert HIkes of WA, calls Black Canyon *stunning!* with black basalt, wildflowers and birds. Definitely worth getting up early for. Drivers will need a Fish & Wildlife permit ($14); I can purchase permits for the group on Friday.
