This was the wknd of the fires, views really limited from Agassiz, but still a fun trip. Got a little tired just beneath the summit, but Cori kept me going!
Another good weekend!

very nice group - love the pictures.
good to see wildflowers - your polemonium looks almost pink.
we got to see some tiger lilly blooming this weekend

your route up Agassiz looks different than I remember - I don't recall being on the much blocky boulders - that would sure make for a long day.
mountain hiking is addictive:
I can quit anytime I want - I just choose not to want

Fun trip! Your pix are the same as mine! It'll be a few days before I get mine up. Lots of new/different flowers coming out since last week.

Sooz, you pix are great! If you took 10 pix of each flower, you could delete the extras (like me!) :D :D

ww,

I got the ticket closer to home. I crossed the carpool line just as it closed I didn't want to cut the gaper off, and couldn't make my move til I was at the double lines. Another guy was right behind me, but because I did it first, I got the ticket. Yeah, traffic school. Kinda sux driving at 65-70 when everyone is flying by at 80+. :(

CHP is all over now. Saw a bunch of people getting pulled over by Pearsonville. I pulled over for gas, and to eat my take out spaghetti, and to rest a few minutes. They were inside, and when they saw me they came over. Turns out someone reported me as wreckless and driving at excessive speeds. I told them I went over the line once, and fishtailed but got back in control. I was passing two motorhomes, and got a little too far to the left and my back tire hit the reflector lights and I fishtailed a little. I told him I was not driving at excessive speeds. It probably looked that way when I fishtailed, though. They asked about drinking, where I came from, what I was doing, etc. I told him I was hiking all day and bagged two peaks, starting at 7am. He was ok after that.

I got a speeding ticket on 395 a few months ago - 80 mph. That was my first speeding ticket in 30 years of driving, so I guess it was about time. I took did my driving school class online. So, for the next 15 or 16 months I'll be driving 70 mph instead of 80 mph on 395.
