Save this one for April or May when this normally drab peak is streaked in enough purple and gold to make a University of Washington Husky jump for joy. Patterned in lupine and larkspur, buckwheat and balsamroot, Patterson is packed with showy blossoms in the spring. But there’s more to meet your eyes than the fabulous floral show. Views far and near await you as well, from the sparkling waters of Patterson Lake to the glistening glaciers of the Sawtooth Ridge.
