    Default Skookumchuck Trail, July 12

    young bull moose near the trailhead...







    trail lined with ferns and bunchberry at around 4,000'...








    I saw another family of Bicknell's Thrush in this area. This is a youngster...






    a view from Garfeild Ridge toward Mt. Garfeild...






    Garfeild Ridge, looking north...





    Mountain Avens, which only grow along this ridge and on the Presidentials and in the arctic region...






    False Hellebore...






    some sort of ragwort (I think)...





    happy trails

    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!!!

    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...
