Denny Creek “waterslide” August 11, 2012
It seems that everyone in Seattle made the trip to the Denny Creek waterslide today for some respite from the stifling upper 70s heat today. I have never seen a trailhead in Washington state with more cars and I have never seen more people in the ‘backcountry’. The water was still surprisingly cold as it flowed out of Melakwa Lake from the Cascade snowmelt, but the kids and adults didn’t seem to mind. I don’t think we’ll be going back to this place again in the prime summer season because the crowds are just too much. But it made for a good Seattle summer Saturday.
