Flowers on the Way to Gilson Creek
Here are the most noticeable wildflowers on the hike from Oakland Camp to Gilson Creek. The rest of my narrative will have to wait until this evening. I'm due to lead a before-breakfast hike, a between-breakfast-and-lunch hike, then a return trip to Mill Creek Trail by Bucks Lake with my wife. Last week's hike to that trail left me with a sense of anticipation. Snow was almost gone and lots of wild plants were budding. Hopefully, today most will be blooming. I'm especially looking forward to the Monkshood.
