06/10/19 - Hurricane Hill - Wide Angle

We made another trip up to Hurricane Hill. We're trying to make the most of the few days that the trail will be open this season. Right now, the trail will only be open 6/22-23, 7/4, 7/21, 8/2-4, 9/1-2, 9/13-15, 9/27-29 and 10/11-14. That's only 19 days, and that's it for the year.

It was a sunny day, but there were dramatic clouds coming in from the east. That meant spectacular views, but also spectacular cloud-scapes. The flowers were in serious bloom with phlox, western wallflower, pasque flowers, glacier lilies, avalanche lilies, paintbrush and even some early lupines. The corn lilies were just green shoots, but we'll probably miss them this year.
