More from Agnes Gorge

Agnes Gorge View

The trail to and along Agnes Gorge is a relatively flat 2.5 mile hike. When we were there, there was a considerable variety of wildflowers in bloom. Fortunately, the streams crossing the trail were not yet flowing enough to cause a major problem. I think a few weeks later the snowmelt would have created much wider and deeper streams to cross.

The big payoff for the hike comes at the end of the trail. The view there is down into the gorge with the Stehekin River rushing madly along. There are several stands of lupin that frame the view and make it even more remarkable. That’s where the image above was taken. I’ve included a couple more of lupin and the beautiful evergreen forest that are encountered along the way. Enjoy.
