Thanks Tie for the wildflower photo's, they are looking quite nice this year.
I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

The flower you called phlox is actually Nuttall's sandwort. Thanks for sharing your lovely photos.
