Yellow seemed to be a dominant color as did fuchsia with splashes of white and pale pink here and there. My intentions for today were to have closer examinations of the flowers comparing them to flowers in my Central Rockies Wildflowers book but time didn't allow for that. That will come on July 25th when I touch down on Sunshine Meadows.
I did touch down on Healy Pass as you can see. Yes, that is me lost in the Castilleja Miniata aka paintbrushes.
Along side a babbling little brook!
Framing a mountain scene!
Carpeting a mountain meadow!
And even blending in with our blended frozen watermelon treats!
Don't be fooled by what looks like or sounds like a walk in the park! This was still 6 hours and 30 minutes of hiking over 19 kms with 698 meters of elevation. The elevation was gradual though and with views like these today, effort did not amount to anything, that will come tomorrow!
