This will be a birds and bees plus wildflower outing.  Bring you binolculars, bird books and flower books or apps.  It will be a slower pace hike in order to see all of nature at it's best. Hike to Gibson Lake on trail and hopefully have tim to hike a faint trail and some off trail up the ridge to a great view in all directions. Drive to Gibson Lake trailhead will require a 4WD vehicle  because of a very rough road with possible creek crossing. Need one more 4WD for the trip. The group will stay together.  The trip is not set up to be a 13er hike only.
