Follow along with Seattle local Dorian Gossom on her first autumn hike of the season! Trek past towering evergreens and fields of ferns to reach one of Washington’s most astonishing bodies of water, Blanca Lake. Well known for its luminous turquoise water, you can often expect packed parking lots and crowded trails during summer months – making fall an ideal time to plan a visit! Plus, if you ask us, the misty moody fog of early autumn just adds to the ethereal quality of the lake. See for yourself in Dorian’s photo gallery on Steller below!
