Circa 2007. Pretty steep hike, not long.
(oh, and I forgot, it starts at over 9,900 feet. oops!)
However, this is your reward...
tho' hopefully there's not a towering blonde blocking your view. =)
These next 2 views, in particular, kill me. Looking south.
Magic lake. Where does it go?
Pitty butterfly. Guessing a fritillary.
Looks very much like the Callippe fritillary (Speyeira callippe) on bugguide.net.
Rosy rocks begging you to sit, rest, soak it in.
The Gaylor Lakes MarmotMayor, below, is encouraging you to visit.
And bidding you adieu.
K. I'm now inspired.
Gotta cram this hike onto my calendar.
You? Any cool hikes you are planning,
or perhaps NEED to plan to take this summer?
And, btw, it's MUCH cooler at 9,000 feet than down here.
And this week's forecast is brutal.
Just sayin'. =)
