Where the North and South Fork Skykomish Rivers come together, passengers in cars motoring along U.S. Highway 2 are treated to an amazing sight. To the south all eyes find it hard to miss the Yosemite-like visual delight of Bridal Veil Falls leaping a thousand feet into space with a series of foamy cataracts from its source in Lake Serene. Visiting the lake during the week or in the off-season, it’s a serene experience as well, albeit a tough and exhausting one. But Lake Serene and Bridal Veil Falls are extremely popular places to visit, so hikers must be in a sharing mode on weekends.
