What3Words: a beautiful day on mostly trails. We hiked around the bowl below Beehive Mountain and spent much of the day enjoying the wonder of Sub-alpine environs. I watched a herd of big horn sheep feeding on the grasses on a rise within the bowl. Blue skies and wildflowers abounded today. Forget me not, Indian paintbrush, valerian, daisy, dandelion, and many others I cannot name. I am so fortunate to be out here.After the initial climb, the were a lot of ups and downs. But it wasn’t too bad. Camped in a great spot under the trees on top of soft duff. There are plenty of mosquitoes that are being frustrated by my tent mesh. This too gives me pleasure.
