Even at the highest elevations, in the middle of thick forests, a melting glacier can provide the most magnificent and unexpected sighting of a waterfall. Between early summer and fall, the glaciers formed on the mountain are the source for these powerful falls.

When you are approaching these falls on the trail, the sound of the angry water gets louder and louder as you get closer. I can still hear that when looking at the photographs.

“Falling water has always been a healing balm when I find myself with a despairing mind and cracking soul. The winter rains of Puget Sound, which never start and stop but only drizzle on, signal the cool comfort of home.” – Bruce Barcott
