20 South Fork hikers (and about 20 others) hiked along pretty Deep Creek

Deep Creek's flowers and trees put on a colorful show on this gentle hike beside a tumbling stream.  We welcome the return of a half-dozen of our seasonal
Wednesday's hike will take us up to the Continental Divide for more flowers--of different kinds.  The weather forecast suggests a dry morning, with an afternoon shower. We'll keep a watch out and try to get back to the cars in time to keep you dry.  However, you may want to bring a poncho in case of a sneaky shower--that sometimes happens up there. 
This is not a strenuous or fast hike, but requires good lungs due to our location right at timberline.  We will probably not hike 5 miles, but that will depend on your preferences.  I suggest that you bring a flower book and/or a camera.
We'll see you Wed at 9 a.m. I hope to be home by 2-3 p.m. at the latest. — Doug Knudson
