Ron calls the area 'yuppity', but, to be honest, all the locals we've talked to have been extremely friendly. He's been fishing and gold panning, but so far we still haven't eaten any fresh fish or gotten rich. He thinks the water is just running too fast. We're moving to a lake tomorrow.
He did take some time out for a couple of hikes. We did part of the Trail Creek Trail which is close to where we're parked.
And another day we went to the very popular Adams Gulch where we hiked a loop. The first half was along open meadow with wide-open views.
Then we looped back through the woods - nice as it was getting warm.
There were lots of pretty columbine blooming along the trail.
And wild lupine, both the common purple and some white ones too.
Lupine must really do well in this climate. The domestic version was gigantic in the neighborhood yards.
I guess Ron isn't the only one who thinks the area is 'yuppity'. I laughed and laughed at what somebody added to the pedestrian crosswalk sign.
