"When it comes to resplendent alpine meadows, the Henry M. Jackson Wilderness can’t be beat. And when it comes to ?ower romps within the wild area named for the longtime senator and champion of conservation, Cady Ridge ranks supreme. A multitude of blossoms proliferate along this mile-high ridge. But it’s the lupines that dominate—transforming Cady into a purple mountain majesty. Views are magni?cent too, from the inspiring Poet Peaks to snow-and ice-harboring, horizon-dominating Glacier Peak." Read more
