Hot weather? No problem — take a cool trip

It’s been hot lately — hot enough to poach eggs on the roof of sun-exposed cars, and hot enough to bake brains in the ovens of sun-exposed skulls. The weekend ahead calls for a slight reduction in the thermostat. Likely it will be warm enough to sweat but not so hot as to cook. If you’re looking to get outdoors this weekend, here are some ideas:

River walks are prime picks this time of year — they tend to be shaded and, should your internal radiator begin to steam, they often offer options for a quick dunk. One popular river walk is the beautiful Icicle Gorge Loop (4 miles long, with minimal elevation gain), starting 17.25 miles up the Icicle River from Leavenworth. Attractions include a narrow, rocky canyon carved by churning rapids at the downstream end of the hike, and a particularly alluring swimming hole at the Rock Island Campground near the upstream end of the hike.
