We had a little extra time on our way back to California so we planned a hike. We really wanted to hike Hanging Lake Trail but by 10am the access road was closed. I've read the Hanging Lake trail is a big draw for hikers and they come early. Total bummer to have missed our window. I guess we will have to plan a little better the next time through. We decided to hike a nearby trail called Grizzly Creek Trailhead. Just a simple creek side hike uphill right off the interstate.
The pictures say it all. It's so beautiful there. I love all the green. And the flowers. And the water. The mountains. Ok. I love everything.
