Fall color in Washington’s North Cascades
Fall is the perfect time to hit the trail
With school under way and summer beginning to fade, hiking might be slipping from your mind. But don’t pack up your family's hiking boots just yet. Autumn is a terrific season to hit the trail.
Our wildlands are bursting with fall color this time of year — hues of flame red, bright orange and soft yellow. Summer crowds have begun to dwindle, and pesky mosquitoes have disappeared, too. Critters such as marmots and songbirds are more active and visible as they hurry to find food for the long winter ahead. With a few extra layers for warmth and the lure of a thermos of hot cocoa, your little ones will find fall hiking to be full of brilliant color and natural exploration.
