Josephine Lake via Pacific Crest Trail Professional Review and Guide

"From the trailhead at Stevens Pass, Pacific Crest Trail 2000 switchbacks upward, at times skirting the edge of the ski runs. Despite the trail’s proximity to civilization, flowers are thriving and the area is lush with vegetation. Between 4000 to 5000 feet I saw mertensia, Sitka valerian, yellow violets, lupine, foamflower, bead lily, heather, rosy spirea, and tiger lilies.

As the trail approaches the high point of the ridge (5200 feet), bistort, phlox, and mountain ash begin to appear. From the ridge crest, the trail descends on a series of long switchbacks that zigzag down to colorful flower meadows."
