A long list of eager hikers quickly shortened to the final five who braved the weather report and were not deterred by stories that the flower bloom had still barely begun due to the heavy and late spring snow. Flowers were scarse, but varied, and heavy clouds hung overhead. A few meadows did reward us with bountiful color, so everyone vowed to return in a couple of weeks to catch the peak bloom. A congenial time was enjoyed by all and the rain held off until the last mile.Members: Becky Lipton, Jyoti Naik, Jim Woodard. Nonmembers: Hannah Fleischmann, Jim Woods.
