Took a stroll up from the lodge to see how the bloom was going. Great views, lot's of miniscule and dwarf blooms in the green parts. To the west of the Lodge on the Timberline Trail, it was too snowy to be fun or flower filled, but the ridgelines east, above White River Canyon were wonderful. the gullies and ravines are still filled with snow though. Fantastic day and great views.
