June 15, 2009
I reach the closed gate which is in the midst of alternating Aspens, Pines and mountain meadows. The sun has just crested the eastern horizon and sends its promising warmth of sunbeams piercing the Aspens. I am hiking along this cowtrail road that goes into the old Mary Adams Cabins and taking in the mountain morning air. What peace to enjoy such an early morning hike. It is certainly wet and muddy out and as soon as I leave the roadway and am off into the Aspens and grass I am soaked to the knees. Walking is so wet that the ground oozes with every step. A Mule Deer Doe is standing back in the trees watching me. She doesn't seem alarmed in any way. Just curious and maybe a little amused.
