We will enjoy the wildflowers and views of the Front Range Mountains as we walk through the forested areas and open meadows.    We will try to identify the flowers by their common names.  I saw 28 different species of wildflowers on June 5th of this year.  Bring your cameras, 10 essentials, water & snacks.
