|Our destination on day 1.|
|Dr. Seuss plants|
|A view of the trail, cutting into the hillside.|
And the views? Well, as you can see, the views were spectacular. Green, green lakes, clear skies with beautiful mountains, and lots of beautiful wildflowers. We did see a rather large herd of elk, or maybe two herds hanging out together. We were not close to them so my pictures didn't turn out but it was nice to see those large animals in an area where they were not going to be messed with by people. It was reassuring that wild spots remain on this planet and I can't wait to hit the trail again.
