Tumwater Canyon

A cliff-shadowed chasm carved into the mountains by the rushing Wenatchee River, swollen by numerous creeks and cascades that join it in its descent from the summit. Spring brings to bloom great clusters of rock lily in crevices and sets dozens of small waterfalls to polishing the rock walls of the canyon. Streamlets from the higher snowfields survive into midsummer.
