Comments
Comments: It was ride to the sky day on the rock pile. Hiked up to watch the motorcyclists ride up, hundreds of them up there but it was very well organized and even though it was busy it was enjoyable and entertaining to see.

Along the Alpine Garden there was only one flower peeking, a white one. I think I missed the other ones by a couple of days, they should be blooming very soon. It was a perfect day to spend a few hours above treeline!
