I wanted to visit Maple Creek to enjoy some warm weather, but the fog overtook me while climbing Butler Valley.

Before turning around I went a few miles on beautiful yet treacherous Bald Mountain Road.

So many wildflowers and snow on distance peaks still today!
my favorite flower is lupine

Mad River levee, fennel and pea

I couldn't name half the flowers I saw today.
Easily more than a dozen varieties.

34 miles in 2 hour 25 minutes, max 37.3 mph
