Two night backpack trip in Indian Heaven Wilderness, with day hikes to Lemei Rock and the Lakes Basin
September 24, 2018
Indian Heaven Wilderness is my favorite place to hike in the fall, with huckleberries in brilliant shades of yellow and red. We were planning to hike to Blue Lake from the Thomas Lake trailhead, but the road was washed out so we started at the Indian Racetrack instead and hiked up to the Red Mountain lookout.

Siouxon Creek is my favorite low elevation rainforest for backpacking. With waterfalls, a beautiful creek, and many shades of green everywhere you look, it’s hard to beat.

I didn’t think I’d get a chance to go here this year due to a wildfire, but parts of the area reopened just in time to see this subalpine splendor in brilliant fall color.

This is a great year for wildflowers on Silver Star Mountain! We took the Grouse Vista trailhead from the south side of Silver Star. The trail is steep, with large gravel and rocks for most of the way.
