July 21, 2009
The flowers along the river and in the willows are a pallette of colors that would be envious of any artist. Indian Paintbrush, Yarrow, Cinquifoils, Bistort, Arnicas and hundreds of others such as these Elephant Heads paint the countryside with such lavish colors. Fly Catchers, Pine Siskins and Juncos are busy amongst the willow and Pine searching out their meals. Clark Nutcrakers join in on the chorus of bird song that certainly brightens the day. It is a musical in technicolor. I would like to hike further but I slowly do make my way back to the trailhead.
