For example, here are the falls in April, 2016. We'd had a dry winter and there was a lower-than-normal snowpack in the Cascade Mountains. The result: the danger of wildfires increased and water available for crop irrigation declined.
Here are the falls during my April 20, 2018, hike. Much more dramatic!
This year, quite a few trails were closed. Our recent rainfall had turned some paths into streams--slippery and unsafe for hikers. We slogged through a few muddy patches and skirted mud puddles, but the trails we explored were fine. That day I logged eight miles on my Fitbit. (That included walking the grand-dog around our neighborhood.) A good workout.
