Spring on the Cascade Loop
Mountains are still blanketed in snow up high, but the foothills turn emerald green now. Orchards lining river banks begin to blossom, and snow-melt fills rivers, lakes and streams. Waterfalls rush along the roadways delivering spectacular views. Gardens burst with Spring flora, and fields fill tulips and daffodils.
