Silver pass to Bonito pass hike
We started out at Silver Pass at 10500 ft. and had lunch on top at an elevation of 11600 ft. over a distance of about 2 miles. The trail is in good shape with only a few trees down on the trail.
As always, the views were magnificent, very little smoke from the Windy Pass fire and none from the West Fork fire (YEA!). As you can see the wildflowers are out in full force for our pleasure..............
I didn't see the bull elk but everybody else did, he was in velvet. On the way to the Silver Pass we saw a doe with a TINY fawn, couldn't have been very old.
Wayne will be leading a hike Monday for your enjoyment, meet at the VCPL at 9AM, bring lunch water and raingear........
