Great shots as always Patrick. We're going to be on Garfield Ridge a week from Monday. After seeing these pictures I'm looking forward to it even more!!!

They all smile when they see Patrick back to say hi.

I love the shot of the bunchberries lining the trail. Great quality to that!

The avens shot on the ridge is fine as well...but I'd definately put the bunchberry path into your perminant portfolio...
