"A daunting hunt for seeps hiding in a primeval forest in the Glacier Peak Wilderness. Swimwear superfluous. In this neck of the woods, Sulphur Warm Springs ranks second only to Gamma for sheer elusiveness. It’s pinpointed on the maps on the edge of Sulphur Creek at the 1,920-foot contour line and listed by the Forest Service as located across the creek from a point precisely 1.8 miles up, but stumbling across it on the ground is another matter. The trick is to gauge the 1.8-mile point, beyond which the trail fades into a fishermen’s route, and then watch for a faint track angling downhill to a haphazard line of footlogs crossing the torrent. If you’ve picked the right track and managed to balance your way over the right logs, the springs should be lurking close by."

"This is an arduous climb, mostly through dense forest, to an old lookout site with stunning views over the unbroken virgin forests of the Suiattle River valley and to the icy north face of Glacier Peak. One of the closest vantages to the 10,541-foot volcano without actually being on that mountain, you’ll have to work hard to get it. As reward, you’ll get flower-flowing meadows and the more-than-likely chance of having all this beauty all to yourself— aside from an inquisitive marmot or two."
