I found my way on to Blanchard Mountain on Saturday. So out of shape. The weather was perfect--it felt like May up there. There is new signage. It seems like every year the trails get a bit more civilized. I noticed white blazes, probably for the Pacific NW Trail. The roads are improved, as the logging companies are doing their business up there right now. It seemed like some of the woods were thinned here and there too.
Sunday found us out in the Skagit valley, checking out the daffodils. Some tulips are even coming up.
