Best wildflower hikes, plus photo gallery

At lower elevations, wildflowers are starting to put on a show, offering promise of wildflower hikes to come. The Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest shared some stunning wildflower photos with us. Take a look at the gallery, so the next time you get out on the trails you'll be able to call them something other than "the yellow one" or "the blue one."

And if you want more than a photo gallery can provide, here are some nearby wildflower hikes, and two drives, courtesy of the national forest's staff. Follow the links for more details on the hikes. And, for more suggestions if you're willing to drive a bit farther, click here.
