Spark An Adventure: Skykomish Swimming Holes

Spark An Adventure: Skykomish Swimming Holes

There’s no better way to beat the summer heat than to spend the day relaxing by the water and toking up. We recently felt lucky enough to have Anjelika (@abilitytogive) show us one of her favorite swimming holes, a serene riverside space in Skykomish. 

The Skykomish drains from the Cascade mountains into Snohomish County with beautiful forest and tributaries stretched throughout. Many people take to kayaking, rafting, swimming, and fishing in the Skykomish river each year. We spent the day kicking back on the rocks and enjoying the soothing sights and sounds of our secret swimming hole.

Over the river and through the woods lies a lush oasis. A large waterfall splits down a mossy cliff. Vibrant teal glacial waters flow over smooth rocks. Are we in the tropics? Nope, it’s Boulder River in Washington State!

We recently went out to spark an adventure at this secluded spot. Boulder River is a bumpy drive (seriously, don’t drive a small car out there) out of cell range so it’s not usually crowded. Our friend and talented photographer Keti also joined.

While spring has certainly sprung, there’s still snow at the top of some trails. We recently took our adventures to new heights at the stunning Lake Serene. This steep trek included twists, turns, snow, ice and of course, a whole lot of cannabis.

Winter is in full effect. Both the cities and mountains have been bombarded by snow. Employees are bundled up as they work from home. But if you’re like Lazy Bee Gardens, this is the best time to spark an adventure. And that’s just what we did as we trekked through the snow to one of our favorite locations — Franklin Falls.

This trail is a standout, and the first to kick off our #SparkAnAdventure campaign. We chose Franklin Falls for its proximity to Seattle, vibrant green waters and of course, the magnificent waterfall that becomes a frozen wonder in the winter. If you’re new to Washington, or even new to hiking, this trail is a must.
