Boulder Gardens

Mt. Si / Little Si

 

APRIL 6, 2006  - A Muntaineers hike - part of the Basic Wilderness Travel Course.   We sampled every weather type on this Easter Sunday hike: sun, rain, clouds, snow, hail, rain, sun.  This short loop trail begins at the Little Si trailhead in Northbend and travels through woods and a large group of moss-covered boulders that give the trail its name.  Karen described this trail as being several trails and roads cobbled together into a new trail, but the trail was unmarked the day we hiked it.  Typical of an outing with Karen, we found ourselves traveling off trail to get a better view of the surrounding area.  It felt like winter, but wildflowers were already in bloom.
