When we arrive on the East side, the BLM park gate isn’t even open yet, but that is OK because all I want to do is get some pictures of the sun glowing on the rock face. I can’t believe there is still snow on the peaks. The wind is blowing and is supposed to pick up later. In fact, the mountain pass road is going to be closed at noon because of it.
scrambled eggs (corydalis aurea) because they look like someone tossed their breakfast on top of a green plant. The breeze is starting to pick up, but overall this is a great morning for a mountain run.
tree lizards sunning themselves on a large boulder. I watch for a while and then continue on down to the campground. We are back before the wind really starts to pick up and everyone had a great ramble in the mountains today. See you on the trail.
