The Leavenworth Ski Hill made it into a Best Wildflower Hikes book. We can walk the wildlife and plant trail, visit the meadow and hike the 4 The Boyz Memorial trail, which will lead us to views of the mountains and Leavenworth.  Spring flowers we could see are bluebells, glacier lily, yellow bell, chocolate/checker lily, mariposa lily, ballhead waterleaf and many more. There may be butterflies. 

This will be an extremely slow hike with lots of stops for photography and flower identification.
