I spent most of last Tuesday wandering along the Mountain Loop Highway and into the valley of the aptly named White Chuck River. To describe this glacier fed river as "milky" would be an understatement. You literally cannot see more than a few inches under the water. It is a huge contrast to the incredibly clear Sauk River which it empties into just a few miles down stream. I normally hate doing photography under sunny blue skies at mid day but how often do you get to see the western slopes of the Cascades like this???
