06/23/08 - Hurricane Hill Road

Snowshoe season is over, but Hurricane Hill Road is stilled closed, at least to traffic. The park service has plowed the road for about a mile, to the first picnic area. The rest rooms there are still buried under mounds of snow, but a lot of the road is completely clear. We took a walk, and we can report that the first flowers of the season are coming out. The phlox, with its small white flowers is covering the hillsides and scenting the air. We've also spotted little yellow avalanche lilies, some yarrow and a few brilliant paint brush.

If you smell something sweet this time of the year, it is probably the phlox.

There are also avalanche lilies.

There's also some indian paintbrush.

It looks like the mountains have made it through the winter.
