Today was my first full day back in Colorado after a week in Washington with Ruth's clan. My phone stopped charging during the trip and so I didn't take as many pictures of the Cascades as I would have liked. I took a few during a short and steep run up a fire road near our rental house on Sunday and this is the best.
I didn't carry my phone on my longest run into the Alpine Lakes Wilderness upstream from Cle Elum Lake and have to content myself with memories. According to Forest Service web pages, much of the area is covered by old growth, never logged, forest. Indeed, I saw many titanic Douglas firs around and above Pete Lake. Such giant trees are very rare in Colorado.
