I went on a couple hikes to see waterfalls and stopped at a lake. It was amazing to see everything. The one hour we had to ourselves was a little short to have lunch, gift shop and hike on our own, but it was doable based on choosing one of the shorter trails. There is quite a bit of steepness to each hike I participated in, so going downward was easier than upward back to the bus. So, you have to have some stamina and willingness to push through if you're not athletic like me. But, I had an awesome time and I loved all the views I saw. It was great meeting the people in my tour. I would definitely do it again.

Great day and Lucinda our guide was fabulous. Informative, friendly and down to earth. She made sure to give us the best possible experience and she delivered. Sunrise was gorgeous, the clouds parted to give us our view of the Mount and the wildflowers in bloom was a bonus. The stop at the old growth forest on the way down was also a bonus. I wish this review could come with smellavision. The smell of cold mountain air, flowers and fir trees was a delight. Thank you Northwest and especially Lucinda. We had an amazing day and it was tour money well spent!
