HIKING -- Wear gaitors for hiking in the high country; sunglasses too.  The snow and the autumn colors are dazzling.

West Side hiker Rick Rocheleau said he had a fantastic hike Sunday to see the larches near Rainy Pass on the North Cascades Highway. (See his photo above).

"Perfect weather, spectacular scenery, great company."
