6.24 miles of hiking • 1250' elevation gain •
Short jaunt to explore the area of the Ball Creek fire. Having watched it burn from Flag Point lookout I was amazed at how much survived and regrew. Balsam is about a week from peak, Lupines are full on and the area is still in the brief flush of spring green. Such great views everywhere. Because of the haze it was hard to capture all the amazing views.
