In case anyone was planning on attending or watching the Enumclaw City Council meeting that had been scheduled for this coming Monday, July 23, you'll need to find something else to do as that meeting has been cancelled.
An email Wednesday from city administration secretary Maureen Burwell indicated there was only one item on the the agenda and it wasn't time-sensitive.
The next City Council meeting takes place Monday, August 13 beginning at 7:30 p.m.
No. 1 Wildflower Site in our Backyard
According to Visit Rainier, the Mount Rainier area has been designated the best wildflower spot in the United States, and there's no better time than beginning right now to see them.
The designation was awarded by Bob Gibbons, author of "Wildflower Wonders: The 50 Best Wildflower Sites in the World" Princeton University Press, $27.95.

New Closure Posted for Comet Falls Trail
Mount Rainier National Park on Wednesday posted a new hiking advisory regarding the Comet Falls Trail: it is closed from about a quarter mile below Comet Falls to the River crossing above Comet Falls in Van Trump Park.
The Comet Falls trailhead is located four miles east of Longmire on the road toward Paradise. From Enumclaw, it would have been accessible by taking eastbound State Route 410 into the park, turning off onto State Route 123 and then taking Stevens Canyon Road to Paradise before heading down Paradise Road East toward Longmire.
See the National Park site for more information.
