I hiked to the Big Four Ice Caves. Though, calling it a “hike” is a bit of a stretch. It was more a casual jaunt along a flat boardwalk, only 2 miles roundtrip. This time of year, snowstorms dump on the Cascades every week and so the trail was icy and slick the whole way.
Signs warned hikers not to go inside or near the caves, since people had died in years past from cave-ins and tumbling rocks. I observed the singular cave from afar, its mouth partially covered by a recent avalanche.
