Superintendent of Lighting J.D. Ross wanted his visitors to believe that "anything was possible with electricity" including heating the ground to accommodate tropical plants such as banana and palm trees. In the wilds of the North Cascades exotic orchids were planted along the pathways which, in turn, were illuminated at dusk by colored lights.
What appears to be inappropriate by today's standards — light fixtures and wires hanging from live trees — was once a symbol of progress and the celebration of electricity in our lives. Look about, up into the trees and see if you can find the remnants of the historic lighting system in Ladder Creek Falls and Gardens.
