It’s still Spring but Summer is Roaring in… Check Highway 20 conditions click here for updates. There are still Wild flowers everywhere, Lupin and Mules Ear are in masses not far off the Valley floor but even better yet, this warm weather is opening up the higher country where the first of the seasons wild flowers are just starting to bloom. The River is still running high and fast so if you are a White Water River Rafter call for dates now. Mountain Bike riders can enjoy flower lined lower trails along with many technically fun trails while Road riders can enjoy less traffic on the great loops available here, check in at Methow Cycle and Sports for updates on new trails.
