Mt. Rainier and Mount Baker National Park have many trails that lead to premier alpine habitat with unique wildflower gardens and wildlife. Destinations are quite dependent upon snow level. We’ll give more details in July  and at the 4th Class.

We will be walking around Bagley Lake at a slow pace to identify the wide variety available.  What is blooming will be dependent on timing of snow melt and sun. More details to come later
