Perfect day for a hike! Not a cloud in the sky and forecasted high of mid 80s (highest of the year). Started just after 9:30 AM and the views of Mt. St. Helens were great from the start. As we climbed, Rainier, Hood and Adams all appeared as well. Ran into snow just before the Loowit trail but just a patch. Continued on about another mile to the Plains of Abraham in search of a lupine meadow but did not see it. We ran into a nice big snow field right next to a small spring and we suspect the snow was covering the lupine meadow. It still made for a nice lunch spot and we took a nice hour long break, enjoying the views and quiet. Wildflowers along the trail were out in full force -- too bad me and my camera don't take flower pictures too well.....
