Hiking the South Creek drainage!
Nine MPEC hikers enjoyed a great day along the South Creek trail on Saturday as summer was about to begin. Lots of wildflowers, some great views, a cool start over at the beginning of the trail, and a warming day all made for a terrific hike. Pictured here is a happy group of hikers, a lovely shooting star flower, and the treat that Dan Clements and I had on our drive back over to the Trailhead to pick up the van that we drove over in the morning. This huge chocolate colored Ursus Americanus was in the middle of the road and ran up into the trees as we approached. I zoomed in and got a few photos - a really big bear!!! ~ Ranger Dave
