12.6 miles of hiking • 1250' elevation gain •

Beautiful 80 degree day! I strolled up a ways past Twister falls and ate lunch with a nice Crow friend, The hanging meadows are starting to pop and the second wave of shade lovers like Solomon Seal are just starting. Being short legged and not as sure of my balance anymore, the Wy'east creek crossing just before the potholes is a bit harder this year. But I waded on the way out, and crossed at a log jam below the ford on the way back. Great day!!!
