If you've been out in the mountain lately, you'll know that we are in peak wildflower time right now! Even if you've done all your hikes, or the slots are already filled, it's a great time to be out there and see them in all their magnificence (even if you don't go as a volunteer, but just as a flower-lover)!
It's amazing how quickly this summer has been going! It's been great to meet some of you out on the trails, and to see so many data sheets coming in! As always, thanks so much to everyone for your incredible work!!!
Trail condition updates:
As of earlier this week, we had some heavy rains, with obvious signs of erosion on the trails (especially Glacier Basin), and we hope no one got too soaked! The markers are all in place (I have only had to replace a couple over the last 2 or 3 weeks), but may be hidden by the growing vegetation! So if you can't find the marker, you should be able to rely pretty closely on the photos and descriptions in the pamphlet. But if you've really looked hard and still can't find a marker, just be sure to email us and we'll check up on it. And also be sure to email us with any questions or comments.
And feel free to keep sending in more photos of you and the flowers and views for us to upload and share, like this volunteer did!!
