10.5 miles of hiking • 2000' elevation gain •
Wild flower explosion day! Also lots of deer, birds and small tadpoles. I decided to see the flowers before the upcoming heat fried them. I headed up towards Umbrella Falls from the Elk Meadows trail and then continued onto the Timberline Trail over to Heather Canyon. Turned around there and from Umbrella falls area took the Sahalie Falls trail down to my car at the Elk Meadows trailhead.
