Wagner Butte 7-10-19

Photos by Barry M. and Keeley

It was the perfect day to be out hiking, so 9 of us headed up Wagner Creek Road to climb to the top of Wagner Butte.  The flowers were out in force and the Flower People were doing an excellent job in their education program of the rest of us. The meadows were spectacular with all sorts of colors, shapes and sizes of plants. The weather was partly cloudy and we started in 60 degree weather. 

Lunch was taken on top with a 360 degree view.  All the major peaks were in view and easy to identify.  The sun was shaded by clouds while we were on top, so it was very pleasant.  After a long lunch (Maria style), we headed back down the trail to the cars.  Given the time, we all opted to go straight home. 

Thanks to all for sharing the day.
