As we start our hike we wee 3 adventurous guys up high.
Always lots of wildlife.
As I was reading the sign I heard Go Cougs. I was wearing a Washington State University shirt. The gentleman was a WSU grad. He used his biology (he said) and psychology majors (after school in Chicago) to become a podiatrist. Interesting chat with him and his wife.
We got our campsite at Cottonwood Springs and hiked to Mastodon Peak.
Interesting plant called the paper Bag plant.
Another incredible day of exploring.
