Melakwa Lake Hike

  • Icewater
    These are some pictures taken during our Labor day weekend hike to Melakwa Lake. This hike is one of the many found in the Denny Creek recreation area in the Cascade Mountains of WA state, at the exit off I-90 bearing the name. Follow the signs to Denny Creek road, pass the campground and eventually you get to the Melakwa Lake trailhead. Total trip length 8 miles, approximately 9 hours with 2950 gain. Good stopping points at 1 mile in at slippery rocks and at the second falls about 45 minutes further. Hemlock pass is another 2.5 miles. Once you reach the top, the trail drops 1/2 a mile, 350 feet to the lake.


  • Smushrooms
    These photo's were taken yesterday by my husband, Bob on our day workshop on Mushrooms at the Cedar River Watershed in Washington state. See my blog about this event for more information. I don't know all the names of the mushrooms shown. The photo's were taken with a Nikon. All photo's and text copyright Robert and Sheri Harper.
